Did You Know ?

Boys and Girls Club

On Tuesday, Jan. 13, our clubs had our Second Annual Youth of the Year Award ceremony. There were about 70 people in attendance and it was a great evening. The teens nominated for "Youth of the Year" gave speeches. It was really wonderful to hear how these young people are making their own lives better and using our clubs as a springboard. All of the children did a great job and were very honored to be recognized for their achievements. I must make mention of our winner, Desiree. She has overcome many obstacles with her education and persevered through it all. Upon the announcement I could truly see her appreciation for the scholarship- it meant a lot to her and her family. She deserves it and we all thank the community for supporting us and our members. Congrats, Desiree!
