Boys & Girls Club of Greater Charlotte announces its 2023 Youth of The Year and we’re celebrating Jasmine Higgins. Jasmine Higgins will now compete in a regional competition for additional scholarships. Higgins is a senior at Mallard Creek High School, and has a 4.3 GPA! Higgins runs track and is a member of the cheerleading team and the National Honors Society. She’s been a member of the Belmont Avenue Boys & Girls Club for nearly 12 years, where she serves as a Junior Staff member and mentor to younger children.
Higgins, a member of the Belmont Avenue Boys & Girls Club, was selected by a panel of local business leaders from among other outstanding local Boys & Girls Club members. Higgins will now compete in regional competitions for additional college scholarships. The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs was founded locally in 1935 on North Poplar Street in North Carolina.
