LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Jonathan Ray upon the occasion of being
named the Geneva Boys & Girls Club 2013 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
Jonathan Ray upon the occasion of being named the Geneva Boys & Girls
Club 2013 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, Jonathan Ray has been a wonderful member of the Boys & Girls
Club in Geneva for approximately four years; having to overcome several
obstacles, he has truly emerged as a very positive and admirable asset
to the Club; and
WHEREAS, Since becoming a member, Jonathan Ray has volunteered for
events such as the Musselman, a local tri-athletic competition, and has
tutored club members; he is always willing to step in and help out with
other activities such as Triple Play initiative, a club curriculum to
develop mind, body and soul, and Passport to Manhood, a club group to
help young men learn life skills; and
WHEREAS, When he is not at the Club, Jonathan Ray helps out his family
and friends by babysitting, tutoring and mentoring; and
WHEREAS, Jonathan Ray is a ninth grade student at Geneva High School;
an excellent student, he maintains an average grade of about 91.5 while
taking three pre-AP classes and two advanced classes in both mathematics
and science; athletically, he is involved in football and lacrosse, and
basketball on occasion; upon graduating, he plans to attend college and
become a teacher; 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 Jonathan Ray upon the occasion of being named the Geneva Boys &
Girls Club 2013 Youth of the Year; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Jonathan Ray.
