Addie Johnson, a seventh-grader at Central Junior High school, received the 1991 Youth of the Year Award for the Lawrence Boys and Girls Club during the club's annual awards banquet and ceremony on Thursday.
Addie is on the honor roll at her school and is active in the Boys and Girls Club. She previously was the local representative in the State Youth of the Year for Boys and Girls Clubs competition in Topeka and was named runner-up.
Also at the awards banquet, Carl Kurt was named Volunteer of the Year for 1990 for his work and commitment to the Boys and Girls Club.
A presentation also was made to the parents of former Kansas State Youth of the year, Jess Souders. Jess died last fall after an automobile accident. A plaque and his picture will be displayed in his memory at the local club, 1520 Haskell.
