Congratulations to Bloomington High School South siblings Naomi Young and Samuel Young III on being recognized as the 2019 Outstanding Black Leaders of Tomorrow at the City of Bloomington 15th Annual Black History Month Gala.

Naomi, currently a junior at South, participated in the school’s Community Leadership Building Club and participated in the City of Bloomington's Commission on the Status of Children and Youth’s Bicentennial Teen Round Table.

 

Samuel, a freshman at South, participated in a missionary trip to Puerto Rico with Bethel AME Church and is a member of the Nelms Leadership Academy. Both siblings plan to attend college, where Naomi plans to study higher education and Samuel intends to study law.
