Jonathan Miller Named Youth of the Year

Receives $10,000 College Scholarship

Everyone knows Jonathan Miller and Asia Henry are winners. Now it’s official! The two young people 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 and Dawn and Keith Blackburn, Jonathan will receive a $10,000 college scholarship and Asia will receive $1,500 for higher education purposes.


“Jonathan has struggled, and is now making great choices,” said Club CEO Brad Holland. “He’s been a Club member for ten years, and has become a friend and role model to many of the younger kids. He is a fine representative of our Club; we are proud to have him selected.” All finalists were interviewed by a community panel including the Harelsons, Patsy Bock of Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, Allison Tarter of Toyota and Lexus Carlsbad, and John Cottingham formerly of Life Technologies.


Recognition were given to Jonathan and Asia, as well as three other Youth of the Year finalists, at the Club’s Super Star Dinner held on February 19 at their Bressi Ranch Clubhouse.
