Youth Ambassador Program
The Youth Ambassador Program is a scholarship competition open to all high school seniors who reside in the Tri-Cities area. Selections will be based on the student’s personal maturity, volunteerism, and youth leadership potential in support of “Coast Guard City, USA.”
Our current title holder is Hugo Lawton, a 2012 Graduate of Grand Haven High School.
Collectively, our past and present Ambassadors have been involved in the Feast of the Strawberry Moon, Salmon Festival, Day of the Young Child, Kid’s Day at Mulligan’s Hollow, annual Ice Cream Social, Jingle Bell Parade, Memorial Day Parade, World Peace Day in Central Park, International Day of Silence, and various school activities and mentoring programs. They have also devoted much of their time and talent to very valuable causes: International Aid, Helen DeVos Children’s Fund, Center for Women in Transition, Spread the Music Foundation, Camp Bluebird, Mel Trotter Ministries, and their respective parishes.
