Aliah Beasley is energetic. Those who know her well describe her as a social butterfly – active, bubbly, and personable. This is a hallmark of her personality, but the term that truly encompasses her spirit is focus. Befittingly, she is now representing the Newnan/Coweta Boys & Girls Club as their 2017-2018 Youth of the Year.
Aside from her show of leadership as a 2017 Youth of the Year candidate, Aliah has proven herself as a leader among her peers. Not only did she become the president of her Club’s Keystone program, a teen service and leadership group, she also actively participates in various programs at her Club and at school. These include Money Mattes, Career Bound, track & field, and cheerleading – all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA.
Aliah became a member of her Boys & Girls Club at 6 years old, and like many of her peers, she came to view her Club as a second home.
She says, “The Club staff and other members are like family… I’m beyond grateful for the opportunities the Club has provided me.”
