Kristofferson Walker, a sophomore at Seligman High School, has been selected by the Hualapai Branch of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale in Peach Springs as the chapter’s Youth of the Year. This distinction is given to one Club member in each of the Club’s branches.
A basketball lover, Kristofferson could often be seen on the Club’s courts and he admits his favorite memories are of breaking all the basketball hoops while learning to dunk.
Kristofferson aspires to one day travel the world as a doctor, a goal he knows the Boys & Girls Club can help him achieve.
Kristofferson will be honored along with eight other outstanding young people at the Celebrate Youth Gala & Auction on Saturday, March 31, at Talking Stick Resort.
The gala is the Club’s premier fundraising event. Individual tickets are $125. The black tie event begins with a hosted bar at 5:30pm, followed by dinner, a live auction and the Youth of the Year Ceremony.
