Youth of the Year

Our Youth of the Year award has been presented since 2016 at our annual Knight to Shine fundraiser. The Youth of the Year is chosen by our staff and is a young man or woman who embodies the Youth Center's mission statement. It is someone who is a shining star at the Youth Center, in terms of leadership, volunteerism, and heart. This young man or woman is proudly recognized at our annual fundraiser for all they have done for the Youth Center.

We are excited to announce that we have chosen TWO Youths of the Year for 2019-2020. Congratulations to these two equally deserving and passionate Youth Center leaders: Will Servino and Hannah Rogers!
