8th grader recognized as Lee County Boys & Girls Club’s ‘Youth of the Year’

FORT MYERS, Fla. — This month, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County honored Kaliyah Stephens, an eighth grader at Crestwell School in Fort Myers, as its 2024 Youth of the Year. The annual award recognizes one local club member who exemplifies the virtues of good character, academic excellence, community service, and strong leadership.

“It is such an honor, and it means that I’ve progressed, and I’m getting better every step of the way,” Stephens said.

Stephens was one of four finalists who completed essays and delivered speeches in front of family members, club staff, and community leaders. She is already recognized as a role model for younger club members and regularly hosts conversations to motivate and inspire elementary and middle school students.
