Air Force Teen Named Military Youth of the Year
Arianna Skinner from Joint Base MDL, Fort Dix Youth Programs was named the 2016 Military Youth of the Year at a ceremony at the Army Navy Club, Washington, DC. In partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the military services participate in the Military Youth of the Year competition, an annual event which starts at the installation level, advances to the state and six regional levels, and culminates in the recognition of one teen who serves as a representative for military teens across the globe. Although only a sophomore in high school, Arianna is already a role model to many teens at the JB MDL, Fort Dix Youth Center and participates in leadership and service activities and volunteers her time to support the community. Throughout the advancing levels of competition, Arianna garnered over $65K in scholarships and now moves on to compete for the National Youth of the Year title against the five traditional BGCA regional winners on 27 Sept in Washington, DC. After high school, Arianna intends to go to the Air Force Academy to become a fighter pilot.
