GREENVILLE – Empowering Darke County Youth thanked Dave Knapp, Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln, for his continuing support of Empowering programs.

He has been a supporter since the organization was founded in 2016.

“Dave is a pillar of the community,” Empowering Darke County Youth Program Coordinator Bob Robinson said. “I can’t keep track of all the community efforts he has supported. For many years he provided scholarships for Darke County athletes through our scholarship program. Now he helps us help local youth improve their academic skills.

“We appreciate all he does for us and his community.”

Empowering soon will enroll students at Greenville Elementary and Middle School for its third after school program. Since 2016 the organization has provided almost 7,700 contact hours of tutoring and support to 339 students.

Empowering Darke County Youth is a United Way Partner Agency providing after school and summer tutoring programs to assist students in the areas of language arts and math with the goal of strong students for a strong community.
