Laredo, Texas – The Laredo Sector Border Patrol held their Youth of the Month ceremony for October’s honorees at Martin 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.

“By virtue of your successes you are also leaders, and that carries with it great responsibility. You represent the very best of your school, and you stand as an example for others to follow. What you do with this responsibility will determine the impact you have and the contributions you make going forward,” said Jason Owens, Acting Chief Patrol Agent.
