Young Man and Young Woman Awards

Our nominations are due to the State Program Director by the State Quarterly Meeting on March 2nd. I have talked with John Domingo and the new Youth Director and have come up empty. If anyone knows of a young person in our Parish (18 or younger) that would meet this requirement, PLEASE let me know. I have attached a copy of the nomination form for your perusal. I will do the leg work. I just need to know who to do the leg work for. Everybody that is in some way involved with the youth programs in the Parish(i.e. Scouts, Choir, Confirmation, etc.) please take a moment and think about this and point me in a direction.
