Laredo, Texas – Laredo Sector Border Patrol hosted a virtual ceremony where the Youth of the Month honorees were recognized.

Laredo Sector along with community partners, educators, and honoree families, came together on Nov. 18, to celebrate the incredible achievements and accomplishments of 11 honorees, all seniors from Laredo area high schools, and recognize them with the prestigious Youth of the Month Award.

George Altgelt, Attorney at Law, challenged the honorees to find their calling.  Mr. Altgelt said, “What are you called to do? Because if you do not have a calling, a purpose, you’re not going to be good at it. The blessings we have mean you must answer that call and give something back. Your purpose is to serve. Those of you who are recognized as Youth of the Month, you are inheriting a unique situation where you have your work cutout not just for yourself, but the generations that come after.”

In closing, U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar congratulated the honorees for their achievements and wished them well in their future endeavors.

Through the Youth of the Month program, the Laredo Sector Border Patrol and in collaboration with community partners, have recognized Laredo’s top high school seniors for 35 years.  At the end of the school year, 11 Youth of the Month recipients are considered for the prestigious Border Patrol Youth of the Year award that is presented in May.
