Please join us as we congratulate Asia Clark as our 2022 Youth of the Year. Miss Clark is a member of our West End Unit located at our headquarters in Meridian, Mississippi. Asia will be competing virtually at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mississippi state competition with hope of reaching the Southeast competition that will be held in Atlanta, Georgia in June.
For more than 70 years, the Youth of the Year has been the premier program to showcase teens with outstanding communication skills, service to their community, academic excellence and a dedication to living a healthy lifestyle.
"For the past 13 years the Boys & Girls Club has been a major part of my life. The memories and lessons learned have been priceless. My Boys & Girls Club has helped me develop great communication and problem solving skills. As a youth my self confidence was always an issue of mine, and today I’m proud to say that it is not a problem anymore. Through positive staff connections and programming I have overcome that issue. The positive energy and motivation that comes from this place is why it will always be my second home."--Asia Clark
