Parkway Student/Alumnus Receive YMCA Awards

Jordan Deitering, a 2012 graduate of Central High and a resident of Chesterfield, was recently named the YMCA of Greater St. Louis' Joseph P. Sunnen Youth of the Year for 2013. Jordan was given her award at the annual Youth of the Year Awards Dinner along with 14 branch winners who have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and volunteered their time to the Y and their community.

Cameron Carter,  North High junior, was a branch award winner for the Edward Jones Family YMCA in Maryland Heights.

The Youth of the Year award annually recognizes a young Y volunteer who best exemplifies the organization's core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.

Each year, Lindenwood University awards a scholarship of about $62,000 to the young person named the Sunnen Youth of the Year and about $33,000 in scholarships to each of those selected as branch Youth of the Year.
