2022 BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF GREATER SCOTTSDALE YOUTH OF THE YEAR
Sydney F., a 15-year-old Thunderbirds Branch Club member, was named the 2022 Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale (BGCS) Youth of the Year at a celebration held at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts Virginia G. Piper Theater on February 10.
Sydney was awarded $25,000 in post-secondary education scholarship funds and received runner-up at the Arizona State Youth of the Year competition in April.
“The Club has brought me many things throughout these past nine years—a sense of leadership, a voice, and friends that will stay with me as I continue my journey,” said the Desert Mountain High School sophomore.
