ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Marvin Laster has been changing the lives of many members of the Albany Boys and Girls Club for many years.
There is no doubt that he loves his job, but Laster said it’s the impact of his job that makes him the happiest.
Laster became a member of the club when he was just 8-years-old.
In 1994, he won the Boys and Girls Club’s State Youth of The Year award.
Laster knew at a young age that he wanted to be part of the Albany Boys and Girls Club’s administrative team and sees himself in some of his students.
He said he knows the struggles some students are going through because he also went through those same struggles growing up.
His proudest moments are seeing his students thrive in the world, then return to thank him and his staff.
Laster said he encourages all of his students to remember where they came from and to always give back to their community.
