Laredo, Texas – The Laredo Sector Border Patrol held their Youth of the Month ceremony for February’s honorees at United High School.  The Laredo Sector Border Patrol presented seniors from eleven Laredo high schools with the prestigious Youth of the Month Award.

The Border Patrol Youth of the Month program has recognized Laredo’s top high school seniors for 29 years.  Together, with the collaboration of program partners, one student is selected each month from the Laredo-area high schools as Border Patrol Youth of the Month.  At the end of the school year, eleven Youth of the Month recipients are considered for the prestigious Border Patrol Youth of the Year award.

“It takes more than intelligence to be successful.  Always be determined, be humble, be compassionate, and stay true to who you are.  Strive to be the best version of you,” said Doyle E. Amidon, Laredo Sector Division Chief.
