GREENVILLE – United Way Executive Director Becca Cotterman joined Greenville’s Middle School Empowering After School Program during its last session of the fall semester. She presented the United Way’s quarterly check for 2021-22 to Greenville Program Coordinator Jenette Stark, and Empowering Board Member Kay Sloat.

“This is a great program,” Cotterman said as she presented the check. “We are happy to continue our support.” Darke County United Way has supported Empowering programs since the organization’s inception six years ago.

Bob Robinson, Empowering Executive Director, said he is “extremely grateful” for the United Way support. “Our very first year, the United Way was there for us. We wouldn’t be able to do this without them. I can’t thank them enough!”

Empowering programs now serve three school districts. There are two programs in Greenville (Elementary and Middle School), grades 1 to 6 in Ansonia, and grades 5 to 8 in Arcanum-Butler Middle School. In addition, Empowering continues to offer summer tutoring for all Darke County students at the Greenville Public Library.
