Seaside Scenes-Etienne

Dominic Etienne grew up in the safe embrace of the Boys & Girls Club of Galveston and remains committed to it and to helping the children of Galveston.

D ominic Etienne was born on the island and brought up by his loving grandparents, Rose and Lumas Etienne. Both grandparents worked, so at age 4, Dominic was introduced to the Boys & Girls Club of Galveston.

He remembers the feeling of being safe, surrounded by educators who treated each child as if they were their own, he said. Growing up in the Boys & Girls Club shaped the man he was to become.

Carla Peoples covers the social and nonprofit scene in Galveston. Her column appears in the weekend edition. Contact her at with “Seaside Scenes” in the subject line.
