2018-19 Southwest Military Youth of the Year
Erynn has attended her Youth Center for eight years, which she credits for making her the person she is today. Although she has moved four times, her military experiences have made her stronger. She can adjust to new environments with little effort, make friends easily and handle stressful situations with a strong mental confidence.
Her Youth Center experience has given Erynn confidence and courage. As president of her Keystone Club, she has planned coat and food drives and packed kits for homeless shelters. She is also a member of the Student Council and dance team at her high school.
Erynn has logged over 270 volunteer hours through her Youth Center and other community organizations. The high school senior plans to attend the University of Arizona to become a psychologist or a paralegal.
