Our 2014 Youth of the Year
Cenedra, age 15, is a sophomore at Post Falls High School. The Boys & Girls Club has played an important role in her life - she comes to the Club nearly every day since she has become a member. Cenedra does not know what she would be doing if she was not at the Club. She is very involved in her school band and volunteering her time to the community and the Club.
Cenedra began attending the Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County three and a half years ago, and believes the Club is not only a safe place to be, but a great place to give her time to. In addition to attending the Club daily and being an active member in many teen programs, she helps staff whenever needed. She has taken part in many Club activities such as: Money Matters, Jr. Staff, Career Launch, snow shoeing trips, and much more. She knows that without the Club she would not be where she is today.
Upon graduating, Cenedra plans to attend college at the University of Idaho, study Elementary Education with the desire of becoming a Kindergarten teacher. With the support of her family, teachers and staff at the Club she knows can achieve anything.
