Anya Ramos is Boys & Girls Clubs Wisconsin Youth of the Year

Anya RamosMilwaukee Public Schools is proud to recognize Anya Ramos, Wisconsin Youth of the Year! Anya was selected by Boys & Girls Clubs for academic excellence, service, and leadership. As the state winner, she receives a $1,000 scholarship and will move on to be considered for the Midwest Youth of the Year. Five regional winners go on to compete for a national title.

Anya has been a Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee member for the past seven years. She takes an active role as a leader of the Audubon High School Club, having founded this community service club to engage her peers with multiple local organizations. Anya also assisted in chaperoning a trip to Washington, D.C., with her school’s Differenciadors program.

As a member of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council (SSAC), Anya is part of a group that meets regularly to discuss ideas for school improvements with MPS Superintendent Dr. Keith P. Posley. She was part of a student-led effort to get additional drinking fountains installed at her school and she spends time mentoring lowerclassmen to provide a positive high school experience. Part of her busy life includes interning at Reinhart Boerner Van Duren S.C. to learn more about being a lawyer. Anya plans on attending law school at Marquette University.

Congratulations, Anya, and good luck at the next level!
