Spotlight on our 2021 Scholarship Winner: Camille Young

  The Junior League of Baltimore has presented its 2021 Young Woman Voluntarism Scholarship to Camille Young of Long Reach High School in Howard County. The annual scholarship program awards $2,000 to a Maryland female graduating senior who has performed outstanding volunteer service throughout her high school career.

Ms. Young is the Committee Head of Outreach and Mentoring for the Scholars Leadership Program, where she specializes in mentoring middle and high school-aged girls. The Scholar Leadership Program is a service-based honor society for women of color that encourages them to excel academically and build upon their leadership skills. In addition, Ms. Young collaborated with her principal and building staff leaders to develop a series of highly attended, virtual student check-ins designed to support students, answer questions and help determine any needs moving into the start of the school year during the pandemic. As a result of her initiative, leadership and collaboration, the school was able to connect and engage with students before they logged into the start of school.

Ms. Young sought to take GT and AP level courses and is currently in the top 5 percent of her class. As a valuable member of Delta Scholars and National Honor Society, Co-Captain of Poms, and the President of the Student Government Association, Ms. Young is highly regarded by students, faculty and the community.

Ms. Young will be attending historic Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, in fall 2021.
