Meet David Montero, YR’s
2023 Youth of the Year Winner
David is a senior at Harrison High School and the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center. He was nominated by his counselor Ethan Browning with the support of the entire Harrison High School Counseling Department, and they had this to say about their nominee: “David is courteous, kind, honest and authentic. He is a visionary, a strategic critical thinker, possesses effective communication skills, and has been gifted with a creative and open mind; however, more importantly he is humble and understands the importance and the value of hard work that he learned from his family.”
David started a project at his local church for Latino families in the community where he teaches a class each week educating families about their basic constitutional rights in an effort to ensure they are not discriminated against based on their ethnicity.
David is a member of the Criminal Justice and Safety program at SICTC, and has had the opportunity to intern with the Evansville Police Department with Public Safety officer Sergeant Anna Gray. David intends to pursue a career in law enforcement after graduation.
David swims for Harrison and plays varsity football, where he was awarded Academic All-City honors. He is involved with Young Life and the youth group at his church. He also serves as a student representative on the Board of Directors of our local Big Brothers and Big Sisters, where he is both a mentor and recruiter.
