Cecilia Brazil, a junior, was a Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year for the Gabel Branch, and attended the “Today’s Kids, Tomorrow’s Stars” event at the Arizona Biltmore, March 2, honoring extraordinary youth.  Brazil is the captain of the Varsity Cheer team, and was named to the District’s Honors Choir.  Brazil will volunteer over 300 hours in her community this year, at a homeless shelter and food bank.  She has organized the school’s National Honor Society for a food drive for St. Vincent de Paul.  At the Boys and Girls Club, she is the president of the Keystone Club, a service society.  She plans to attend Spellman College in Atlanta, and pursue a career in modeling or social work. Youths of the Year received 16 weeks of training with Toastmasters and AZ Storytellers, new outfits for the young women, professional headshots, business cards, gift bags and gift cards, networking opportunities, and this summer they’ll be going on vacation together.
