Albany Rotary Club hosts youth recognition awards

ALBANY--Some very special young people were honored Wednesday as part of the Albany Rotary Club youth recognition awards ceremony.

Six young people who live in local non-profit agency homes are honored for their hard work and their determination to overcome adversity, something they have all seen plenty of.

"Being out of their own community schools, being out of their neighborhoods, being away from friends, and having to compete to achieve things people take for granted, and they're not only competing, they're succeeding," said Brian Barr of the Rotary Club.

They heard from Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan and Albany County District Attorney David Soares.

Our Greg Floyd had the honor of being the emcee for the event.
