Kaylee Reynolds, 15, was recently selected as Youth of the Year for the Red Lake Nation Boys & Girls Club.

“[Kaylee] Reynolds is a true example of an extraordinary young woman recognized by Boys & Girls Clubs of America for her sound character, leadership skills and willingness to give back to the community,” states a press release.

She is now eligible to compete against other Boys & Girls Club of American (BGCA) members for the title of Minnesota Youth of the Year and a $1,000 college scholarship. If she wins that she’ll be eligible to compete to be Midwest Region Youth of the Year, a title that comes with a scholarship of $10,000.

“Kaylee will represent our club well as she is an outstanding member,” said Dawn Huseby, executive director of the Red Lake Nation Boys & Girls Club, in a release.

Being chosen as Youth of the Year is the highest honor bestowed upon BGCA members. It recognizes outstanding contributions to the youth’s family, school, community and club.

Kaylee, a sophomore at Red Lake High School in Red Lake, Minnesota, hasn’t settled on where she’d like to attend college yet, but she enjoys math and writing.
