2016-2017 Texas & Southwest 
Youth of the Year

Texas Governor, Greg Abbott sends off Melanie W., Texas Youth of the Year, 
to the Southwest Regional Youth of the Year Competition. 

Selected among eight outstanding finalists from Boys & Girls Clubs across the region, Texas YOY, Melanie W. has been named the Southwest Youth of the Year by Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). She will receive a $10,000 college scholarship from BGCA renewable for up to four years, leading to a total of $40,000. 

Before Melanie started high school, she had no idea where her path would lead. Joining her local Boys & Girls Club brought Melanie into a supportive environment that encouraged her to plan for the future and instilled in her the belief that she could achieve anything with hard work. Not only did her Club inspire Melanie to dream big, her drive and unrelenting determination have helped her overcome many challenges in pursuit of her dream to become a doctor.
