Anacortes teen named Youth of the Year
Skagit Valley Herald - 2/4/2019
Feb. 04--MOUNT VERNON -- Growing up, Kyla Whiton said she never felt comfortable walking the halls of her school because her disability made her feel like everyone was staring at her.
"I felt like I had barely any friends," said the Anacortes High School senior, who was born with cerebral palsy. "I felt like I was being judged because of the way I walk, because of my disability."
All that changed when she started attending the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County's Anacortes club.
