AACS Freshman Dyamond Gray won the 27th annual Ed Casey Youth of the Year Award. She was one of six achievement-oriented teens who were nominated earlier this month.
The late Ed Casey was the executive editor of The Capital from 1971 to 2001. Casey was also the co-founder of the county's Boys and Girls Clubs, now known as Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County.
Dyamond is currently working at Reid Temple on a paid internship and she credited the Boys & Girls Club for preparing her to handle that role. She recently began working weekends at Chick-fil-A at Westfield Annapolis mall.
Dyamond told the panel judges, "I am a person that wants to seek more, learn more," she continued, "I'm a positive person. You're never too old to learn or understand."
