|Please join us in congratulating Brooke Grand of the Raymond P. Lavietes Clubhouse in Shelton--she has won the coveted title of Connecticut Youth of the Year! Brooke faced fierce competition from the 15 other Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the state of Connecticut, and she will now move on to the regional competition.
Brooke has been a member of the Lavietes unit for 12 years. She's a hardworking, highly motivated young woman, with a willingness to help others and positive attitude that set her apart. Brooke has served as a Keystone Club officer, she has run our Happy Hoopers health program, she's been a mentor in our Immersion Mentoring program and has also worked as a counselor both at our clubhouse and in Perry Hill school for our after school program there.
At school, Brooke is in the National Honor Society, is a three-year varsity player for the volleyball team, and an AP student. She sets off this fall to attend Southern Connecticut State University, where she will major in business.Congratulations to you, Brooke! We love you!
