Longview — The Pilot Club of Longview chartered its first middle school Anchor Club at Judson Middle School on Tuesday evening.
Anchor Clubs are the youth organization of Pilot International and provide service opportunities for students in their schools and communities, said Carolyn Ramirez with the Pilot Club.
“We believe that the younger kids get involved in service, the more likely they are to continue volunteering throughout their lives,” Ramirez said.
The Pilot Club of Longview has sponsored the Anchor Club of Longview High School since 1958, along with the Anchor Club of Kilgore High School that was organized in 1973. Pilot International has opened membership in Anchor Clubs to the lower grades to encourage young people to become involved in community service at an earlier age.
