Meet Keith Edward Gooch III, 2016-2017 Youth of the Year

 

Keith is now a sophomore at Duncun U. Fletcher High School in Neptune Beach. Keith is president of the Keystone Club, a club whose focus is in 3 areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. Those who know Keith say that friendship and fitness is his mantra.

Keith leads a healthy and active lifestyle. He is involved in sports including football, basketball and weight training. He leads "Keith Talks"; sessions with the younger kids talking about real-life.

One of his teacher writes, "Keith's school and community service is motivated by a strong sense of community justice. I can say with confidence that Keith is one of the most caring and driven students I've ever taught in my seven years at Fletcher."

Thanks Keith for being such an great Club member at the Beaches Boys & Girls Club and for being an inspiration in our community.
