Toyota Financial Services awards new Corolla to Boys & Girls Clubs of America's National Youth of the Year winner

Toyota Financial Services (TFS) recently awarded a new Corolla to the 2011-12 Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) National Youth of the Year winner Nick Foley. The vehicle presentation took place at Sarah Heinz House Boys & Girls Club of Pittsburgh. Foley,
the first national winner to come from the Club, was joined by representatives from Toyota, the Pittsburgh community and Club teens at the event. Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl sent a proclamation in recognition of Foley's community efforts, which include logging more than 1,500 service hours.

National Youth of the Year is BGCA's premier recognition for teen Club members who have made outstanding contributions to their family, school, community and local Club while overcoming personal obstacles. Nominations begin at the Club and continue through the state, regional and national levels.  Participants are chosen on local and state levels, with five regional winners meeting each September in Washington, D.C., to compete for the National Youth of the Year title. Five judges individually interview each candidate and select the national winner.

"By overcoming the odds, mentoring others and giving back to his community, Nick embodies the spirit of the Youth of the Year award," said Mike Groff, Senior Vice-President, Sales, Marketing and Product Development, TFS. "Toyota is proud to join with Boys & Girls Clubs of America in supporting extraordinary youth like Nick."

Foley is a graduate of Taylor Allderice High School in Pittsburgh and attends Pennsylvania State University, majoring in civil engineering.
