Alyshia Singh, Justin Singh, and Daisy Garcia are “Youth of the Year”
By Loreen Berlin
Each month throughout the year, one boy and one girl showing exemplary leadership skills at the Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park are chosen from the 150 club members as Youth of the Month. Then at the end of the year, one boy and one girl are chosen from those 24 as Youth of the Year during the Club’s annual luncheon and awards.
CEO Todd Trout said to be chosen, the Club looks at how the individual did in school, what they are doing in the community, their honesty and attitude, and how dependable they are and if they demonstrate teamwork.
