2 contenders in this category.

Luci Lettau

Hello! I am Luci Lettau, I'm very grateful to have been nominated for both Youth Volunteer and Youth Entrepreneur, so thank you to whoever nominated me. I am a Junior at Casa Roble with a passion for photography. This past year I have had several opportunities to serve the community. I started the year by taking photos of Casa Roble's Prom as well as the 2022 Casa Graduation and the Casa Graduation parade. During the summer I took photos of VBS at Sunrise Church. I also joined the Orangevale Teen Council and through them I have been able to help plan multiple events including a Silent Disco at the Orangevale Palooza, Christmas in July Food Drive, an Outdoor Movie Night at Dairy Queen and a Stocking drive. Through Orangevale Live I have had the opportunity to photograph the Blossomvale Re-Grand Opening, the 40th Dairy Queen Anniversary Celebration and the Turkey Bowl. Thank you to all the coaches who have allowed me the opportunity to photograph games and then share those photos with the players and their families. I have so much love for Orangevale and the support it has shown me, and I am so honored to have been nominated for both these spots!

Liam Quillin

My name is Liam and I started a leaf raking business this fall. I am 13 years old and attend Andrew Carnegie middle school. I love soccer and play for a local club. I scheduled my jobs around my schedule and started my business by creating and passing out flyers on my bike to anyone with big trees. I served my neighborhood off of Pershing Ave between Greenback and Madison. I was able to help my community and got to know some really nice people along the way. When I had a big job I invited my little brother Theo to help. Payment for my services came in many forms, including fruit off their trees or snacks and drinks. I had many repeat customers and got standing yard work jobs from my seasonal business. Thank you for the nomination and consideration.
