Lucresha Taylor
Southwest Club Youth of the Year

You may remember Lucresha when she stood in front of us at the Impact Youth Breakfast in November and shared her story about how being in the Boys and Girls Club profoundly affected her life.

Yesterday, she stood in front of another room of 300+ people and shared her vision for youth in America, which includes detaching from the digital world to increase focus & success in academics. Additionally, Lucresha has been accepted at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina – though she has a few more applications out there, and hasn’t decided which community she will change next, yet.

The Southwest Club is now one year into the Youth Program Quality Initiative and has taken active leadership in connecting young people to education, counseling, recreation, and a wide range of other supports in the South King County. School’s Out Washington is proud to work with the Southwest club (as well as all of the other Boys & Girls Clubs in King County) to improve the quality of interactions available for young people, and we are particularly proud of all of this year’s honorees for Youth of The Year. Please join us in congratulating Lucresha and the other honorees, their families, and support teams at the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County!
