CORY VEAL-YOUTH OF THE YEAR JUDGING

BGCCV staff Marcus McBride and Myself

This week the  judging for the Youth of the Year finalist took place  at the AFLAC support center on Tuesday evening.  This is a major step in progression towards the main event in March at the National Infantry museum. The event included 10 judges who scored the finalist on character and leadership, obstacles overcome and the willingness to give back to his or her community and club.

Furthermore, I am so proud of each finalist. Over the past few weeks I have had the pleasure to hear their life stories and get to know them a little better and I can truly say I have been touched by each child. So, regardless of who goes home with the  award, they are all deserving to be nominated for such a great title. Not to mention, our very own Professor McCullough had been helping each finalist over the past month prepare for their speeches.

Next week we will be continuing with the fine details of the event. We are just one step closer to success and I cant wait share more of this journey!
