Sheboygan teen chosen as Youth of the Year

Kimberly Vue has been selected to represent the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sheboygan County as the organization's 2013 Youth of the Year. The announcement of Vue's selection was the highlight of a recognition event at the Clubs' Sheboygan Falls Unit on Jan. 17. She will travel to Madison on March 4 to compete against about 25 other local winners from across Wisconsin.

Vue's parents divorced when she was 7 years old, and she found herself facing a different world than she was used to. Suddenly, she had new responsibilities and less of a support system than she was used to. She needed a place where she could be a fun-loving little girl, and learn to cope with the new challenges in her life. She found that place at the Boys & Girls Club.

Vue is a member of the Stayer Unit and a Senior at Sheboygan North High School.

"I am happy when I attend the Boys & Girls Club, and I have become the person I am today because of it," Vue said. "I have learned many things at the Club and my lifestyle has improved from that. I hope that other kids have the chance to experience what I have experienced and learn from it like I did. Hopefully one day, I will be the one inspiring and affecting the lives of many Boys & Girls Club members."

Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs of America's premier youth recognition program for Club members. It promotes and celebrates service to Club, community and family; academic performance; moral character; life goals; and poise and public speaking ability. Through local, state and regional competitions, winners receive successively larger college scholarships. Five regional winners compete for the National Youth of the Year title. This outstanding youth representative receives an additional $50,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States.
