A Natrona County High School senior has been honored as the the Boys & Girls Clubs State Youth of the Year. 18 year old Sierra White was awarded the title on Monday, February 13, at a Legislative Dinner in Cheyenne.

Sierra has been a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming since moving to Casper six years ago as a pre-teen, and says the Club has become her family. “There has been one constant in my life, one place where I can go to find protectors and friends,” said Sierra. “My place is the Club.”

As the State winner, Sierra receives a full scholarship to the University of Wyoming and will represent Wyoming at the regional competition in Texas in June.

Established in 1947, Youth of the Year is the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program for Club members, promoting service to Club, community and family; academic success; strong moral character; life goals; and poise and public speaking ability. The program is used as a year-round tool for fostering young people’s character, personal growth and leadership qualities. Contestants are judged in several categories presented in written essays, an oral speech, and live interviews.
