Third straight year a Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside member earns title

Oceanside CA— On the evening of March 8th, Ariana Tahmas, Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside’s Youth of the Year won the title of San Diego County Youth of the Year! Ariana will now represent San Diego County at the state and, potentially, at the regional and national level.
Ariana, a junior at El Camino High School, is involved in the Keystone Club, Model United Nations, and the Girls Learn International Club. She is part of her high school basketball team and practices at Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside (BGCO) with the Club team. She has played cello for four years and also plays the violin.
Six San Diego County Youth of the Year nominees gave speeches on the impact Boys & Girls Clubs has made on their life. Ariana proudly credited the Club with giving her a home away from home and being there for her when her family life was in turmoil.
“Ariana is such a passionate and driven young woman who has overcome many obstacles to become the leader she is today,” said Jodi Diamond, CEO. “This is the third year in a row that BGCO has taken home the county title and we couldn’t be more excited for Ariana!”
Youth of the Year is a national Boys & Girls Clubs of America program. Since 1947 this has been the premier recognition program for Clubs, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Club teens. Club members who earn the Youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership and service; academic excellence; and healthy life styles. They exemplify the critical impact that Boys & Girls Clubs have on the lives of young people.
