Dale Neyra, a student at the Middle School of Plainville, has been selected to receive the United Way of West Central Connecticut’s “Youth Live United Award” for Plainville.
Each year during the United Way of West Central Connecticut’s Community Builders’ Reception, companies and individuals who give back to the community through the United Way are honored. According to United Way’s President, Donna Osuch, the Youth Live United Award recognizes middle and high school students with a connection to United Way who have given back to their community through volunteerism, and truly Live United.
One youth from each of the United Way of West Central Connecticut communities (Bristol, Burlington, Plainville and Plymouth) was selected to win their community’s award.
Neyra was nominated by Plainville Kids in the Middle Coordinator Amy Kievit. In her nomination, Kievit noted that even though this is the first year for the program, Neyra has “jumped in with both feet.” He has demonstrated the strongest commitment and passion to the Kids in the Middle program. From leadership opportunities to caroling at nursing homes, Neyra has truly embraced all of the activities and has one of the highest participation levels out of the 80 Plainville students involved with KIM.
