Congratulations to our Youth of the Year, Hazel!

Hazel is a fifth grader who has demonstrated outstanding compassion, leadership, creativity, and optimism at the Salmon Bay Boys & Girls Club. Hazel encourages her friends to be their best selves, and never hesitates to ask “How can I help?”. As a fifth grader, Hazel will be graduating from our program this school year, and she will be missed! Thank you Hazel for being a great role model for your peers!

The Boys & Girls Clubs holds a Youth of the Year celebration for teens, which Hazel will be eligible for next year.
