Anaa Jibicho Named Minnesota Youth of the Year
Anaa Jibicho, our Twin Cities Youth of the Year, was selected as the 2019 Minnesota Youth of the Year on March 19. Anaa has been an active member of the Mt. Airy Club for the past nine years and serves as our Community Outreach intern. He is a full-time PSEO student at the University of Minnesota and will be attending Pomona College in Claremont, California next fall on a full-ride scholarship.

As the state Youth of the Year winner, Anaa received a $5,000 check, a $12,000 Home Team scholarship to go toward his post-secondary education, and a chance to participate in the regional Youth of the Year competition this July in Chicago. We are so proud of his hard work and dedication, and wish him luck as he continues in this competition!
