We are proud to announce our June Hero of the Month, Miguel Ramirez!
A hero can be defined as a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Miguel Ramirez is a hero to more than 60 members at the Clubhouse. As a member of The Boys and Girls Club of Milford for the last 8 years Miguel has participated in dozens of programs offered at the Club. As a member, volunteer, Jr. Staff and Youth Development Professional the Club changed his life and helped shape who he is today from his morals and self-worth to his goals and dreams.
Not only was he taught lessons but as time went on, he was able to be the person to teach lessons to younger members. Miguel went from needing a hero to being one. Miguel mentors at the Club, laughing, smiling and engaging the children in Milford with confidence. Miguel demonstrates qualities that range from high academic ethic to an intense scientific curiosity. He is president of the Club’s Keystone Club where he and other members plan fundraisers and gain leadership and entrepreneurial skills and is the 2018 Youth of the Year.
Miguel is a soft spoken leader who puts people and his family before himself. He is a very dedicated young man who exemplifies what a hero is. Miguel will be graduating this year and is excited about his upcoming journey at Eastern Connecticut University to study Marine Biology!
