The Micron Foundation congratulates Darnisha Victorain, a six-year member of Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County, for her amazing accomplishment in achieving the Boys & Girls Clubs of America 2011-12 Pacific Region Youth of the Year award. As the Pacific Region Youth of the Year, she advances to Washington D.C. for a chance to compete for the national title – the highest honor a club member may achieve. Victorain and four other regional winners will also have a chance to meet with President Barack H. Obama in the White House Oval Office.
Prior to this recognition, Victorain received the Boys & Girls Clubs of Idaho’s Youth of the Year award in both 2009 and 2011, earning scholarships totaling $18,000 with the generous support of the Micron Foundation and other program sponsors. She is a 2011 Meridian High School graduate with a 3.3 grade point average, who is pursuing a double major at the University of Idaho this fall.
The Micron Foundation wishes Darnisha Victorian the best of luck during the National Youth of the Year competition, Sept. 16-21.
