As president of Windfield Alloy in Atkinson, New Hampshire, Eric Tetler continues to expand and develop his growing business. Outside of his professional obligations, Eric Tetler contributes to several local children’s charities including the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Derry and affiliated New Hampshire clubs.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of New Hampshire teamed up with Harris Interactive to research the impact the clubs have on the lives they touch. They conducted an online survey, which reached 124 former Boys and Girls Club members from the local area.
The survey demonstrated that 96% of respondents graduated from high school, an impressive figure considering the state’s 87% overall graduation rate. More than a third of those polled have already successfully completed a four-year college degree as well.
These outcomes are undoubtedly influenced by club members’ attitudes about learning, which tend to improve due to club participation. Nearly 75% of those asked said they became more serious about their schooling as a direct result of their time spent with the Boys and Girls Clubs of New Hampshire.
