Adam is the 16 year old son of Brenda and Jim DeYoung, two of the newest members of the Optimist Club of Gettysburg. The DeYoung’s travel from their home in Greencastle, PA to be enthusiastic members of the Gettysburg Club, setting forth an amazing example of community service for their children and others. Adam is following his parents example of “Bringing Out The Best In Kids”, by selecting the Gettysburg Optimist Youth Basketball Program as his community service project, a requirement for his graduation from the Greencastle-Antrim School District next year.
