Selected among ten outstanding youth at a gala luncheon in Jefferson City, Missouri, KaeShawn S. has been named the Missouri Youth of the Year by Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). The Youth of the Year title is a prestigious honor bestowed upon an exemplary teen in recognition of leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to live a healthy lifestyle. As the Missouri Youth of the Year, KaeShawn will serve as an ambassador for all teens in the state, will receive $6,000 in college scholarships and will go on to compete for the regional Youth of the Year title, ultimately vying for the national title. The gala luncheon, attended by local Youth of the Year winners from across the state, is the culmination of months of hard work, community service, and speech and essay preparation by Missouri’s youth.
