Owensboro-Mike Horn Unit
The Owensboro Boys Club opened in 1967 in a building donated by Trinity Episcopal Church. The unit was soon renamed The Cliff Hagan Boys Club, in recognition of Cliff Hagan, an Owensboro native and standout basektball player at Owensboro High School, the University of Kentucky and in the National Basketball Association. Over the years, the club grew and changed locations. In 1993, the club opened its programs and services to girls and became The Cliff Hagan Boys & Girls Club. In 2005, we opened our doors at our current location, Mike Horn Unit.

WE ARE BACK!
We welcomed back some of our club members in September to a not so "traditonal" format but as a Learning Center at our Owensboro location. We are able to provide our club members with reliable internet access, staff who are dedicated to helping them with their virtual experience and coursework, and an environment that promotes learning, with few distractions. We offer TWO learning sessions throughout the day. Club members may attend ONE or TWO sessions. We are also now providing transportation after school with participating schools!
STEM-Creative Minds at Work
Club members had a blast making their own Solar Ovens! STEM education focuses on the introductory level STEM courses, as well as awareness of the STEM fields and occupations. What seperates STEM from the traditional science and math education is the blended learning environment and showing students how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life. It teaches students computational thinking and focuses on the real world applications of problem solving.
