Rickey Tedesco Finalist for Florida Youth of the Year

<- Go Back To News & Updates

Our own Rickey Tedesco, a Venice High sophomore and current Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties Youth of the Year, competed in the Florida Youth of the Year Competition on April 21st. 

Competing against 30 other Youth of the Year winners from across the state, Tedesco shared his personal story and embodiment of the Club’s values of leadership, service, academic excellence, and the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle

We are proud to report he was a finalist for the award that ultimately went to a member at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County.

“I have grown up so much from the first day I joined the Robert & Joan Lee Club,” says Tedesco. “Through my Club mentors, the alumni – like Whitney Stewart - who share their stories and the things I have learned from everyone around me, I now don’t let past hardships or obstacles change the course of the positive path I am on. I believe my story is the true ideal of what the Boys & Girls Club is all about.”

Congratulations to Rickey and all of our individual Club winners.
