Youth of the Year Luncheon

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 - 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Steil Club - 235 Straight Ave. NW

Presented by Lake Michigan Credit Union

The Youth of the Year luncheon honors exceptional club members who display outstanding character and leadership skills, excel academically, and who give back to their schools, clubs and community. It is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program that celebrates young people, ages 14 to 18, for their commitment to community service, academic success, good character and citizenship, and establishing long-term goals. Local winners receive a scholarship and go on to compete at the State and possibly Regional and National levels.

Please join us in celebrating these exceptional youth and applauding our 2020 Youth of the Year!

We are very excited to welcome Monica Sparks as our keynote speaker! Monica is a wife, mother, and passionate servant leader, who loves her community. She is a Kent County Commissioner, former City of Kentwood Planning Commissioner and also served as a Zoning Board of Appeals Commissioner. Monica is a licensed State of Michigan Real Estate Broker and Certified SCORE business mentor and counselor. She was selected by CORP Magazine as the Diversity Business Leader of the Year(2009) and in 2018 as one of the ’50 Most Influential Women in West Michigan’ by the Grand Rapids Business Journal.
