|BRADENTON, Fla. — Marc Dosogne has resigned as chief executive officer of Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County, the Board of Directors announced today.

“We believe this is what’s best to move forward and return our focus to our mission of improving the lives of Manatee County’s young people,” said Chairman of the Board Mike Moschella. “Therefore, we accept Marc’s resignation and wish him well.”
