A sophomore at Huntington North High School and only 16 years old, Brianna McIntyre’s future looks as bright as the awards she recently received; all she has to do is decide what she wants to do with them.

McIntyre is the 2020 Parkview Boys & Girls Club of Huntington County’s Youth of the Year, an honor she received after she wrote a speech and three essays on how to make the world a better place, in a competition with the other members of her club.

For her win, the seven-year club member received a $500 scholarship from local sponsor Lake City Bank.
