Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been Boys & Girls Clubs of America's premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements and work of Club members.
Nancy Reyes, a student at Orange Cove High School, has been a member of the Fresno Boys and Girls Club for three years. Nancy was named as a finalist for the Boys & Girls Clubs Youth of the Year and is planning to become a teacher where she can give back to communities in the Central Valley.
It was my pleasure to meet with Nancy and present her with a Senate Certificate of Recognition. It is safe to say that Nancy put herself and Orange Cove on the map (quite literally)!
