Congratulations to our very own McKinsey Nicholas for being selected as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana’s Youth of the Year!! To say that your Wildcat family is so very proud of you is an understatement!
McKinsey has been a member of the Vermilion Boys & Girls Club for 7 years. Through the Youth of the Year process, McKinsey had to complete a packet consisting of a resume and cover letter, write several essays, and had to obtain letters of support. He competed against the top teens from other Clubs around Acadiana (Iberia, Opelousas, and 2 Lafayette Clubs). Each participant had to deliver a 3-5 minute speech on what the Club means to them, and then participate in an interview in front of a panel of judges.
McKinsey will now compete in the State competition next month. We wish him the absolute best! Keep reaching for the stars!
