Congratulations to Miranda Gibble who was named the
East Austin College Prep Youth of the Year for 2016 by the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area. Read what they have to say about Miranda:
Miranda Gibble has been a Club member at the Southwest Key II (East Austin College Prep) Club since she was in 7th grade. She is a sophomore and is still very active in Club life. With plans to attend The University of Texas at Austin and enter into the chemical engineering and medical fields, Miranda is confident that the person she is becoming is because of her Boys & Girls Club experience. Miranda is self-motivated, goal-oriented and won’t stop until she reaches the finish line. Literally. This past year Miranda ran a full marathon and is training to run another. This spring, Miranda will work with underprivileged youth during a school trip to Thailand.
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area partners with Southwest Key Programs to provide free, quality after school programming for EAPrep students on-campus. It's part of the East Austin Children's Promise initiative from Southwest Key to offer holistic support to our students and their families so that children in the East Austin community are provided with the optimum environment to succeed in life.
