The Young Citizen of the Year and Willie W. Lightfoot Youth Advocate Awards were established by the Monroe County Legislature 25 years ago as one of the highest honors for youth and adult leadership, community service, advocacy and perseverance, according to Monroe County. All selected winners are dynamic Monroe County residents with the passion and drive to change the world, as well as identify and realize solutions to problems. They are committed to strengthening their communities and themselves. These awards also pay tribute to citizens who have made a local contribution toward advocacy and action.
Countywide, there are nine Willie J. Lightfoot Youth Advocate of the Year award recipients and 106 Young Citizen of the Year award recipients. All countywide awardees, including those from WCSD, were celebrated during a June 13 ceremony at Monroe Community College.
