Celebrating Akeyla, our NorCal Youth of the Year 2020-2021
We are so incredibly proud of Akeyla who competed last Tuesday at the statewide California Youth of the Year (YOY). Throughout this entire process, including our organization-wide Youth of the Year event in January that she and our other candidates have been preparing for since 2020, she has shown nothing but determination, passion, and hard work. After a long day of interviews and delivering her pre-written speech last Tuesday, we celebrate Akeyla as 1 of 9 YOYs from across California and 1 of just 3 YOYs from the Northern California region. Thank you to Akeyla for always making the MPBGC community so proud and honored to be a part of her journey, which is only just beginning! Here at the Club, great futures start here. Our Youth of the Year program is just one of many efforts to help Akeyla reach any and all of her educational, career, and personal goals, and we look forward to supporting her and all of our teens in where they want to go and what they want to do next.
