Julianna Garner and Lucas Clayton were selected as Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad’s Youth of the Year Winner and Runner-Up respectively.
The Youth of the Year program recognizes superior leadership skills, academic achievement, obstacles overcome, and outstanding service to Boys & Girls Clubs and the community. Thanks to the generosity of Julie and Matt Harelson, Julianna will receive a $10,000 college scholarship!
“I am so grateful to the Boys & Girls Club for making me the person I am today,” Julianna said. “This scholarship will bring my dream of graduating from SFU even closer, and make me work even harder to achieve this goal!”
“Jules is a ‘born to lead’ kind of kid,” said Club CEO Brad Holland. “She’s been a Club member for eight years, and participated in every activity we’ve got. She’s a positive and inspiring role model for everyone, and we’re so proud of her many accomplishments!”
Recognition was given to Julianna and Lucas, as well as three other Youth of the Year finalists, at the Club’s Super Star Recognition Dinner held on February 13 at their Village Branch.
