Boys & Girls Clubs of North County celebrate annual Great Futures Awards

FALLBROOK – With over 100 guests in attendance, the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County celebrated the achievements of its members and staff at the annual Great Futures Awards.

Youth members are recognized in the areas academics, athleticism, sportsmanship, and citizenship. The Youth of the Year is also named, the highest award a club can bestow on one of its members. This year’s award went to Genesis Aaron from Fallbrook Street Elementary.

Staff and volunteers are also recognized for their efforts. The Program Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Selene Damian for her outstanding service at the William H. Frazier site; the award for Coach of the Year was presented to Rolando Rojas for his dedication to teaching members the correct way to play soccer; Raul Perez was recognized as the MVP Staff for the professionalism and dedication that he pours into the club each and every day.

This year, the Legacy Endowment Community Foundation awarded Jason Fuentes and Esmeralda Solis with their Rising Star Award. The Rising Star Award recognizes those outstanding youth that excel in being positive role models by their exceptional community service, academic improvement, peer mentoring and leadership abilities.

Each Rising Star honoree receives $200 towards college expenses. The Ridgecrest Family Endowment Fund was created in 2008 at the Legacy Endowment Community Foundation by Laurenn Barker and her brother, Sandy Prater, as an incentive to encourage youth to stay on the positive path toward high school and college.

Legacy Endowment Community Foundation is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit public charity established in 1994 to provide leadership, serve donors, and award grants and scholarships to improve and enrich the quality of life in San Diego’s North County, forever.
