Girls Inc., the national afterschool and summer camp program for girls is coming to Bartow, starting this school year. The first Girls Inc. program was opened in 1864 in Waterbury, Conn., and has since expanded throughout the United States and Canada. Kay Fields, CEO of the Girls Inc. program in Lakeland, is the woman behind the move to Bartow.

“One of the things that we’ve always wanted to do is make sure we serve as many girls as we can, and we’ve had a presence in Bartow before but we’ve always had to use someone else’s facility,” said Fields, who is also a school board member.
