For Club members at Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club being named Youth of the Month is a high honor. Every month youth are recognized for modeling their leadership abilities.
For the month of September, PNBGC named Alexa Brown as Youth of the Month and Va’Quaria Dunn as Junior Youth of the Month.
“Va’Quaria Dunn has shown growth in areas such as Academics, community involvement and team spirit. She brightens up the Teen Center with her overall contagious smile and spirit,”Diedra Richbow, PNBGC Program Coordinator shared.“We look forward to seeing her future growth and progress she’s going to make in the Teen Center.”
Dunn shared her favorite summer program was cheerleading.
“Alexa Brown has grown into a leader within the Club by following Club rules and helping out despite being a Club member for only a short period of time,” Diedra Richbow, PNBGC Program Coordinator shared.“She’s always eager to help and she’s the kid that goes out of her way to welcome new members because she knows that coming to a new place with unfamiliar face can be scary.”
Brown and Dunn were named Youth of the Month for showcasing leadership skills during their cheerleading camp sessions.
