|Prescott Valley School’s Youth Chamber leaders for the 2013-2014 school year are, back row from left, David Henderson, Justin Edwards, and Christian Nicholas; and front row, Jasmine Morales, Alex Nellis, and Jacob Midkiff.
The award-winning Prescott Valley School Youth Chamber Club has selected new leadership for this school year.
The new executive board includes Jasmine Morales, Christian Nicholas, Justin Edwards, David Henderson, Alex Nellis, and Jacob Midkiff.
Morales also functions as the newly created "student consultant" to Bill Suedmeyer, the club's faculty advisor. Morales was the first undergraduate to receive the coveted Joseph Bowman Leadership Award last spring at the club's award ceremony.
On Thursday, Aug. 29, the Board met for the first time to plan this school year's many volunteer and community events.
First up is the American Red Cross Blood Drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, at Prescott Valley School, 9500 Lorna Lane, in Prescott Valley.
The next day, the Youth Chamber returns for the eighth year to help out at the Tour de PeeVee, the Boys and Girls Club's fall fundraiser.
Later this fall, the Youth Chamber is sponsoring a "No Bullying Zone" day, collecting food for the Yavapai Food Bank, and collecting blankets for Open Door and the homeless in the community.
"This new leadership is dynamic, exciting, and young. We are going to have a fantastic year helping out in our community. They truly live up to our slogan, Youth Who Care," Suedmeyer said.
Anyone in the community who would like to donate blood, food, or blankets can call the Prescott Valley School at 928-772-8744 for information.
