The June Bug Center is a 501c3 nonprofit created in 2001 by Donald H. “Swede” McBroom and Dorian Dugger. They formed this community center in honor of Swede’s late mother, June McBroom. June was a loving and giving woman who had a passion for the arts and education for Floyd County and its citizens. She felt that the children were at a disadvantage, due to the lack of facilities available afterschool, and the absence of funds to access these opportunities.
The June Bug Center for Arts and Education (JBC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to providing music, performing arts, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) through ongoing afterschool programs, classes, and community theatre productions that are affordable to the New River Valley community.
