We are so proud of 11th grade student Naseem Hamid for advancing to the finalists of the Children's Aid Society / Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year award. Along with fellow Junior Crystal George, Naseem completed the competitive application process. After they were both chosen for the first round of the competitive fellowship, Naseem was chosen to advance to the next round.
Students "put in hours of work, writing essays, filling out an intensive application, securing letters of recommendation, and practicing a three-minute speech.
"There are two constants from year to year: All the teens are exceptionally driven and accomplished, and the judges have a difficult time making a decision. This year wasn’t any different."
Naseem is just one of our extraordinary students reaching for new heights in partnership with the Children's Aid Society. We celebrate him and his future accomplishments!
