    From May 18-21, 2011, Boys & Girls Clubs of
    America held its National Conference in New
    Orleans.  Some 2,000 youth leaders, politicians
    and business leaders focused on key youth
    issues, including bullying, summer  learning
    loss, technology and kids,  the high school
    dropout crisis and more.

     

    During the conference, six outstanding leaders
    and former Boys & Girls Club members from
    around the country were inducted into BGCA's
    Alumni Hall of Fame during a special
    ceremony.

     

    One of the inductees was John Paul DeJoria.
    From rags-to-riches, this self-made billionaire
    is co-founder of John Paul Mitchell Systems
    and The Patron Spirits Company. He has been
    listed on the Forbes 400 Richest Americans and
    The World’s Billionaires.
