Gallon Boys and Girls Club Hall of Fame
Dr. Steve Gallon III

On Saturday, October 28, 2023, the Honorable School Board Member Dr. Steve Gallon III was inducted into the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade Alumni Hall of Fame as a member of the 2023 Class. The induction event took place during the Clubs’ annual black-tie “Wild About Kids” Gala at the Loews Coral Gables Hotel in Miami, Florida.

Growing up in Liberty City, Dr. Gallon was a member of the Northwest Boys Club during the late 70’s. He would go on to become a teacher, principal, District administrator, Superintendent of Schools, and now the elected School Board Member for District 1.

“I am tremendously humbled and honored to receive this induction and to join my fellow inductees in this honor,” Dr. Gallon said. “Looking back, I learned the fundamentals of discipline, perseverance and teamwork. My time there really set foundation for lifelong lessons on resilience, perseverance, and it really served as a foundation for my accomplishments today.”

The event was the organization’s 15th annual Gala. The proceeds raised from the event will support the Clubs’ programs and services, which are crucial to help children in the community realize their full potential and become productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
