Eric Tetler joined Windfield Alloy in 1994, and he is now president of the Atkinson, New Hampshire-based company. Actively involved in his community, Eric Tetler contributes to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Derry, which maintains a number of youth programs, including its after-school program.

The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Derry’s after-school program operates Monday through Thursday from 1 to 7:30 p.m. and on Fridays from 1 to 9 p.m. Students participating in the program can choose to do their homework, play in the gymnasium, or play in the game room.

From 3 to 4:30, the program conducts its “Homework Power Hour,” where participants receive points for completing assignments. They can exchange their homework points for prizes once per month. Students also receive points for competing in tournaments in the game room. The game- time points are accumulated weekly, and at the end of each week, a king and a queen of the games are crowned.

In the program, students can engage in physical fitness through a variety of recreational activities, including matball, kickball, and dodgeball. The after-school program promotes the arts as well, featuring a number of creative arts clubs such as Drama Club, Craft Club, and Fine Arts Club.
