Desmond BeggarlyCongratulations to Desmond Beggarly, from BGCAA’s Freetown Village Boys & Girls Club, for being named the Maryland Youth of the Year!

The Youth of the Year title is a prestigious honor bestowed upon an exemplary young person in recognition of leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle.

Desmond, along with our five awe-inspiring local candidates, were nominated for their dedication to lead, succeed and inspire.

As the State Youth of the Year, Desmond will attend training at the Advanced Leadership Institute, June 25 – 28 in Atlanta. He will then compete in the Regional Finals in New York City this August. A win there will send him to the national competition with several scholarships and the chance to meet the President of the United States.
