At the recent virtual Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors for Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County, Mr. Thomas A. Moseley, Esq. was recognized with the presentation of the National Silver Medallion from Boys & Girls Clubs of America. This prestigious award is given to board members and other volunteers who have provided outstanding and exemplary service to a Boys & Girls Club and to the Movement in a specific area or region. Mr. Moseley has been involved with the Manatee County Clubs since 1982, serving on numerous boards and committees over the years.
Some of Moseley’s accomplishments include co-founding the Foundation for Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County and serving on both the statewide Area Council for Boys & Girls Clubs and the Florida Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs. Under his leadership as President with the Florida Alliance, he was instrumental in overseeing legislative efforts in securing over $24 million in funding for Clubs across the state. During his time with the Florida Alliance board, more than $64 million has been secured to assist youth to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
In addition to raising significant revenues for the mission of the Clubs at a statewide level, Tom has been an advocate and champion at a local level. Some of his endeavors include chairing fundraising events, leading the Endowment Committee to establish a Legacy Club for planned giving purposes, raising funds to establish teen programs at several Club locations, and coaching baseball for several years.
“Mr. Moseley’s leadership and dedication has been an essential part of the success of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County. His additional support at a state level has had a tremendous impact in our ability to serve those who need us most,” said Dawn Stanhope, President & CEO. “We are very pleased to be able to celebrate Tom’s efforts with national recognition.”
The response to this surprise recognition was both moving and inspiring. Tom Moseley shared his appreciation for being recognized, noting he has met some of his best friends through his involvement with Boys & Girls Clubs and received, in return, much more than he has given in the various roles he has played over the years. He also stated, “I am proud to be involved in this Movement, as it truly is a collective group where everyone is moving in the same direction to improve the lives of youth.”
