It was an evening filled with music, performance and achievement at World Cafe Live last Thursday night when the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware celebrated their annual Youth of the Year Awards. Some 250 party goers and several elected officials, including Governor Jack Markell and US Senator Tom Carper, joined in the celebration. From 11 state-wide finalists, the panel of judges awarded the 2015 Youth of the Year Award to Xitlali Roman-Campos, with the Greater Milford Club. Roman-Campos was selected because of her leadership, community service, academics and healthy lifestyle choices. The Military Youth of the Year award was presented to Quintel Green of the Dover Air Force Base Club.”It was simply the greatest evening to have ever been a part of,” said George Krupanski, chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware.
