The mastermind of last year's Peace Walk and Peace Rally in Benton Harbor is this year's Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year. Jasmnika Newbern, a senior at Benton Harbor High School, was awarded top honor this week by the local club. The award is given to a member who rises above their circumstances and makes positive changes in their lives, Club, and community. The Peace Walk and Rally was held on the last day of school, which have proven to be the most violent day for schools across the nation. A member of the National Honor Society with a 4.4 GPA, Newbern has enough credits to graduate early. Newbern has been accepted to Michigan State University and Alabama A&M. She expects to run her own business after graduation.
