Michelle Imbaquingo, a Mount Kisco teen, was named 2012 Youth of the Year by the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester, the highest honor a club member can receive.

 

Michelle ImbaquingoMichelle Imbaquingo, a senior at Fox Lane High School and a resident of Mount Kisco, was crowned 2012 Youth of the Year by the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester on March 23.

Imbaquingo joined BGCNW in 2010 and is currently a junior staff member and active volunteer. In addition to making the honor roll throughout her high school career, she draws from personal experience to help teach English to Latino students as they adjust to life in high school and has dedicated time as a volunteer at Mount Kisco Child Care Center. Imbaquingo plans to attend college, where she would like to study to become a pediatrician.

With the Youth of the Year Award, she received a $1,000 scholarship from the club and will compete against other Boys & Girls Club youth for the New York State Youth of the Year title. Five regional winners will compete for the national honor in Washington, DC, in September, when the National Youth of the Year will be named by President Obama in a White House ceremony.

“Michelle has displayed such determination for her goals and compassion for others in the time she has been part of BGCNW,” said Barbara Cutri, director of operations for the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester. “The Youth of the Year is meant to be a role model for all children in the community—and that is exactly what Michelle is, an exceptional role model for BGCNW members and the entire community.”
