Hello all! My name is Alyx Scarborough and I am the new Part-Time staff for Wyldlife in Plano. You may have seen me around the past 4 years as a volunteer leader for Wyldlife as well as East Plano Young Life and I am so excited to officially be a part of our staff team!
I grew up in Carrollton, TX with my parents and older sister and graduated from Hebron High School in 2014. After high school, I began attending Collin College and am now attending Texas Woman's University seeking a degree in child development. Growing up, my family and I attended church every week and we were very active in my church’s youth group. During this time, I had never heard of Young Life or had the opportunity to attend myself. However, that all changed in the fall of 2015 during my sophomore year of college when I was asked to volunteer for Wyldlife in East Plano. I walked in to the first club not knowing what it was or what to expect, all I was told was that the games we played were weird and crazy, but the kids loved them! It only took one club for me to fall in love with the mission and with the kids. Since then, Young Life and Wyldlife have been a major part of my life. I have enjoyed building relationships with my high school and middle school friends, as well as getting to lead with the most amazing group of people.
Looking back to when I first stepped into the club room, I couldn't imagine myself being on staff or even the amazing impact Young Life would have on my life and today I am so grateful. Over the past four years, I have had the opportunity to see Plano Young Life change the lives of middle and high school students, and mine as well. I look forward to the future of Plano Young Life, building more intentional relationships, and watching students come to know and love Jesus. Middle school and high school is such a busy and confusing time for kids. They will make many decisions that will have life long impacts. There is one decision that I hope to witness them make that is the most important, and that is to follow the Lord.
P.S.- This past weekend we got to have our first Wyldlife Club of the semester! I loved seeing kids that went to camp, kids that came last year and new faces all show up to Club on Saturday night. It was amazing to see these middle school kids sit and listen eagerly about who Jesus is. We meet on the following Saturdays at Plano Bible Chapel. All middle school kids are welcome- we'd love to see you there!
