Youth of the Month-March 2015

Katrina Driggers 
Sprague Clubhouse


Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County announced that Katrina Driggers is the Club’s March Youth of the Month. The Youth of the Month honor is earned by one member each month in recognition of their strong leadership, good character, and commitment to service.

Katrina has been a member of Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County for 4 years. During her time at the Club, she has developed into a confident leader. Katrina used to keep her feelings bottled up because she feared what her peers would think of her. She began attending the Club’s teen night and her confidence began to flourish. Recently, Katrina realized that younger members see her as a mentor and she knows the importance of being a good role model to others. 
 
Katrina has a wonderful sense of humor and has a great attitude about life. As an only child, the Club provides her the opportunity to socialize with youth of different ages and backgrounds. She has said that her experience at Boys & Girls Club has given her so much insight into life and she has learned how important it is to open up. Katrina is thankful that she has the Club in her life and she has other teens to relate to.

Katrina has always been a big help to Club staff and tends to spend her time in BGCPC’s Fine Arts program assisting with activities. She is a talented artist and enjoys giving her art work to others. Katrina is known to recruit younger members at the Club to get involved in art activities and she came up with the idea of having Club members hand deliver their art work to residents at a local nursing home. This year, Katrina has the goal of becoming a teen leader at the Club and is on track to completing her community service hours to qualify for the program.

Driggers states, "The Club has made me open my mind and push myself to be more outgoing and show my real potential.”

As a Youth of the Month honoree, Katrina is eligible to compete in Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County’s 2016 Youth of the Year competition, which provides several scholarships and leadership opportunities. Jim and Barbara Hadley are proud to be BGCPC’s March Youth of the Month Sponsor. If you would like to congratulate Katrina, you may do so by emailing club@bgcpueblo.org.
