WE WILL MISS YOU MR. HOWARD!!!
Howard Lenwood Lanier, III (April 1, 1984 – March 30, 2016) joined the board of directors for the Boys & Girls Club of Chester in March 2016. At thirty-one years old, he was eager to begin serving the Chester community. Howard was a beloved husband, son, brother, family member, friend and mentor. He was employed by AmeriHealth Caritas in the Government Relations department and had previously been the assistant basketball coach at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, PA. Howard was blessed with many gifts and talents, yet he also chose to live his life by giving back to the community and youth. He was an advocate for broadening the scope of youth experiences.
Howard was a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters (Independence Region) and volunteered at the Philadelphia Free Library where he helped students after school with homework and miscellaneous tasks. He also volunteered his time at basketball camps and events. Howard’s interpersonal skills enabled him to build relationships with the youth he encountered by understanding their lifestyles and introducing them to new endeavors. For Howard, becoming a board member meant he had another opportunity to make a difference through education and professional development. His family will continue his legacy at the Boys & Girls Club of Chester through the gift of donations.
