Monday night the Boys and Girls Club held their annual Celebrate Greatness dinner.
Teens were awarded for their accomplishments and citizenship in 2012. Among them are the so-called "Youths of the Year" who hail from the club's three teen centers, the Moses Teen Center, Montgomery Village, and the Richard L. Bean Center.
"To let our teens know that we appreciate them, that they can make it today, just to give them that encouragement that what they do doesn't go unnoticed," said Shauna McMinney of why the Club awards teens.
In all, 10 kids were honored. The club's overall Youth of the Year will represent Knoxville in Nashville in competition with the state's other Boys and Girls Clubs.
