Woodyard, 16Ways honor youth

Tennessee Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard, a LaGrange native and graduate of LaGrange High School, speaks to youth at the Bradfield Center of Twin Cedars on May 29. Woodyard and the 16Ways Foundation, which he co-founded, treated students to a special dinner.

On May 29, the youth of Bradfield Center, a campus of Twin Cedars Youth and Family Services, were treated to a special dinner sponsored by 16Ways Foundation.

The theme for the dinner was “Boys 2 Men.” Tennessee Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard, a LaGrange native and graduate of LaGrange High School, is very active with the foundation and co-founded it with Derrick Kelley. Woodyard and other staff members were on hand for the event.

The partnership between 16Ways Foundation and Twin Cedars was forged several years ago. Each year, the organization recognizes Bradfield Center residents in a special way.

“16Ways staff and board members always do an excellent job sharing lifelong lessons and words of encouragement,” said Twin Cedars Program Director Kim Bond.

The event culminated with each resident receiving a shirt with the 16Ways logo and the inspirational message, “We Believe in You.”
