April 27: 2022 Youth Awards Program

–submitted by Rich Leffler

Today was our club’s Youth Awards Program, which recognized 49 Madison high-school students in nine different categories for their accomplishments in academics, leadership and community service. In addition, 6 high-school students chosen by their schools for their leadership abilities served on the judging panel along with the 11 members of the club’s Youth Awards Committee. There were three categories of Wilson Academic Improvement Awards, Youth Leadership Awards, Academic Achievement Awards, Outstanding Senior Awards, Community Service Awards, and the Fay J. Meade Community Service Award. The operative words were “Academic,” “Improvement,” “Achievement,” and “Service.” These young people exhibit all of these qualities in abundance. As my Yiddishe mama used to say, it made me kvell (look it up).
