AUGUSTA — The Maine Legislature welcomed the 2018 Youths of the Year from Maine Boys and Girls Clubs to the State House on Thursday, April 12. The honorees, officials from the Boys and Girls Clubs and their guests met with legislators and observed the day’s legislative sessions.

The honorees were: Brink Beaulieu of Lewiston, Samuel Boswell of South Portland, Gloria Bila of Westbrook, Timmy Doyle of West Gardiner and Caitlin Grenier of Winslow. Youth of the Year is the Boys & Girls Clubs signature effort to foster a new generation of leaders, fully prepared to live and lead in a diverse, global and integrated world economy. The Youths of the Year were selected for their leadership qualities, including exceptional communications, consensus building and goal setting skills.

At a dinner that evening, the Youths of the Year were presented with Legislative Sentiments honoring their achievement and Timmy Doyle was named the statewide Youth of the Year.

A Legislative Sentiment is a significant expression by the Legislature in recognition of civic and public achievements.
