She is never a youth who will shy away from challenges, and her energy is explosive. She has all the right tools needed to build a character that will make her great, and I’m that she will always remember her humble beginnings her at the Boys & Girls Club.”

“Her parents have commented on several occasions on the improvement in her attitude and behavior, and they have given much credit to the efforts of character development and leadership offered by the Club,” he shared. “I’ve noticed that Jocelyn strives really hard to accomplish things at the Club, and that is a wonderful thing because she will use that same type of energy to accomplish much of her goals in her life. She is a real go-getter. Jocelyn truly deserves this honor, for she has earned through her interest in the Youth of the Month, and the overall programs offered to her at the Club. “
