Male mentors sought for school

A local radio talk show host is inviting men to go back to school.

On Wednesday morning, Helen Blocker-Adams will conduct a news conference to recruit men to mentor Richmond County male students.

The Back to School Men’s Drive for Kids meeting will begin at 10 a.m. at the Waffle House at 1642 Gordon Highway.

Mrs. Blocker-Adams, of radio station WKZK, said she was prompted to launch the four-week campaign after reading a recent article in The Augusta Chronicle about juvenile crime.

For more information about the men’s drive, contact Mrs. Blocker-Adams at (706) 267-0579.
