LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Kewan Beebe upon the occasion of being
named the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and pay
tribute to those young people within the great Empire State who have
made strong contributions to their communities and who serve as role
models for their peers; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Kewan Beebe upon the occasion of being named the Glen Cove Boys & Girls
Club Youth of the Year; and
WHEREAS, Being named Youth of the Year is the highest honor a Boys &
Girls Club member can receive; the nomination recognizes outstanding
contributions to a member's family, school, community and Boys & Girls
Club, as well as overcoming personal challenges and obstacles; the hono-
rees are shining examples and living proof that great futures start at
Boys & Girls Clubs; and
WHEREAS, Although losing his mother at age 13 and overcoming many
difficult challenges in his life, Kewan Beebe has made an impact at the
Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club for the past few years, being involved in
Sports Club, Passport to Manhood, and Keystone Clubs; active in Club's
Basketball Program, he is always willing to lend a helping hand; and
WHEREAS, A great example of what a student athlete should be, Kewan
Beebe was one of the star players on the Glen Cove High School Varsity
Basketball Team; last year he helped lead the team to becoming confer-
ence champions and was granted numerous individual honors; and
WHEREAS, Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club has been instrumental in saving
Kewan Beebe's life; he is preparing for college where he will play
basketball and pursue an education in business/sports management; in
addition, having a desire in working with the youth, his ultimate goal
is to give back by helping the unfortunate; and
WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to honor the youth
of today, and leaders of tomorrow, whose character and achievements best
exemplify the ideals and values cherished by this great State and
Nation; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Kewan Beebe upon the occasion of being named the Glen Cove Boys
Girls Club Youth of the Year; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Kewan Beebe.
