As I have shared with you guys over the last few weeks Youth of the Year is a major event for BGCCV and I am glad to say we had a successful event. Our event took place at the National Infantry Museum on March 13, 2014. The venue itself was beautiful and the audience added the extra touch. Everyone was dressed beautifully and conducted themselves similarly.
Throughout the night Tavari ( BGGCV Staff) and I made sure everything was in order. We were in charge of stage placements and queuing guest when it was time to take the stage. We also took the finalist under our wings for the night and made sure they enjoyed themselves.
Most importantly I’m proud to say our YOY winner was Caleshia Ferguson. She is a senior at Carver High School and hoped to attend Albany State University in the fall. I am beyond proud of her and our other contestants. They were all deserving to take the stage that night.
We were also grateful to have Jason Dennis from WTVM host our event. Not to mention they covered the event the same evening on the nightly news. WTVM also aired segments of the finalist the entire week.
