Shrewsbury – Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, Inc. (SYFS), the town of Shrewsbury’s only private, nonprofit community counseling and social services agency, recently announced the 2013 winners of its Outstanding Youth of Shrewsbury Awards. These awards will be given to four outstanding Shrewsbury youths for their service and accomplishments at a special SYFS 30th Anniversary Gala Celebration and Awards Dinner to be held Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury.

SYFS Executive Director Jeffrey K. Chin made the following announcement:

From a very talented, diverse, and deep pool of applicants, the 2013 Winners of SYFS’ Outstanding Youth of Shrewsbury Awards are as follows: Kristen Grip, Grade 11, Shrewsbury High School; Aaron Hayden, Grade 12, St. John’s High School; Nicholas Silverio, Grade 12, Shrewsbury High School; and Jennifer Tylock, Grade 12, Shrewsbury High School.

The “Outstanding Youth of Shrewsbury Service Awards” are given to four local students who demonstrate outstanding community service, despite experiencing personal challenges. They personify fortitude and selflessness. Award winners have demonstrated remarkable resiliency in overcoming challenges to perform community service. A panel of five judges (two active volunteer SYFS Board members and three SYFS staff members) reviewed dozens of nominees and selected winners from a deep field of worthy young leaders.

The Outstanding Youth of Shrewsbury Awards are sponsored by Central One Federal Credit Union.  For more information or to purchase tickets for the gala, contact SYFS at 508-845-6932 or email jchin@townisp.com or SYFS@townisp.com.
