Youth Salute picks Douglass senior as city's top student leader

Bryson Berry Youth Salute’s 2020 Lexington Youth Leader of the Year is senior Bryson Berry of Frederick Douglass High School. He received a $500 scholarship and Star Award from Holifield Photography, plus an access pass for this fall’s National Council on Youth Leadership program, which went virtual amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Central Kentucky Council on Youth Leadership conducts the annual Youth Salute in conjunction with the nonprofit National Council on Youth Leadership. Rising seniors are nominated by their high school counselors, teachers, principals, and other community leaders. They must have at least a 3.0 grade point average and have been chosen by their peers or an adult leader for at least two leadership roles in school, religious, or community organizations during the past two years. 

Youth Salute celebrated the Central Kentucky nominees via Holifield Photography’s biographical displays at Fayette Mall. The students also participated in an online leadership seminar hosted by Asbury University. For questions, please call Holifield at (859) 276-2040.
