Teens demonstrate leadership in the classroom and beyond in an afternoon of inspiring stories as Riverside’s Mayor and City Council honors Riverside’s 25 Most Remarkable Teens.
The Riverside Youth Council and Mayor Ron Loveridge presented this year’s recipients of the Riverside’s 25 Most Remarkable Teens distinction on Tuesday, May 11, 2010. The teens were honored in a special City Council presentation at the Riverside City Hall Council Chambers.
Through nominations by principals, educators, counselors, and community leaders, the Riverside Youth Council annually selects students to be named Riverside’s 25 Most Remarkable Teens. The Riverside Youth Council received over a hundred nominations of students and carefully reviewed the nominees and selected 25 in various categories, including Courage to Overcome and Most Promising Teen.
“It is a moving event which gives us an opportunity to recognize the many extraordinary accomplishments of young people in our community”, say Mayor Ron Loveridge. “These teens demonstrate talent and innovation in areas that include creative arts, extracurricular contributions, volunteerism, and athleticism among others.“
In addition, the Riverside Youth Council produces and hosts a public access TV show highlighting each of the selected teens. “The production allows us to share with the Riverside community stories of triumph, demonstrating that young people are leaders now. It also showcases the RYC’s media talents and dedication to promoting positive youth images.” says Riverside Youth Council Chair, Paul Caporaso.
