Akeel Walker March Member of the Month

Akeel moved to Nantucket from North Carolina last summer. Knowing how new he is to the community, it’s been so nice seeing him jump right into a variety of Club activities.

He loves sports. This year he was on the NBGC Boys Travel Basketball Team, as well as the NBGC DII “Mavericks” Basketball Team. He also joined the very first NBGC Soccer league. Akeel has participated in Triple Play, a national BGCA program that encompasses overall wellness of the mind, body and soul.

When he’s not playing basketball, he enjoys watching and supporting his friends on other teams. When the weather is nice, Akeel will likely be found throwing the football around with his friends.
