Westminster High School graduate Stephanie Raley was named the Boys & Girls Club of Westminster's 2016 Youth of the Year, the program's premier award, in May.
The award recognizes a member's leadership, service, academic excellence and healthy lifestyle and is sponsored by Disney, Toyota, University of Phoenix and Taco Bell, according to a BGC of Westminster news release.
Raley, 17, lives in Westminster and has three older brothers.
In the fall, Raley will attend Robert Morris University to study criminal justice. While in high school, she interned with the Maryland State Police and participated in numerous leadership activities offered by the BGC of Westminster, including working as a mentor to elementary school-aged girls.
She also received the 2016 Toyota Making Life Easier Scholarship, a national Boys & Girls Club award that will provide her with $3,750 each year through four years of college.
