Danville, VA - An 8th grader at Gibson Middle School in Danville will take home this year's Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year award. Lamar Redd was nominated because of his serious attitude toward school and positive example at the club.
Redd has attended the club for 3 years. We're told he regularly helps the younger students, and prepares their snacks. He says he's so honored that they would choose him, and that the club is like family.
"That's one thing, we treat everybody as a family, so to a truly I'm not only accepting it on my behalf, I'm accepting it on the club's behalf and all the kids that go here as well," said Redd.
Redd says he'll represent the club at a state competition in early April.
