Thank You 2022 Youth Commission Seniors

Lilly Crawford is graduating from Haas Hall High School in Fayetteville, AR. She is completing her second year serving the Great River Region Youth Commission. She has worked to plan both virtual and in-person youth events for the past two years.  Lilly has been an active member of her youth group at First Christian Church in Fayetteville.  She plans to attend the University of Arkansas and to become a Special Education Teacher.

Zoey Brown joined the Youth Commission for her senior year at Heritage High School in Rogers, AR. Zoey has brought a love of physical activity and singing to the youth events from the past year.  Zoey has been an active leader and participant in her youth group at First Christian Church, Rogers. She will attend the University of Central Arkansas in the fall.

Both our Seniors have been led by the Holy Spirit in their planning of youth events. It has been an amazing thing to see how they have answered the call on their lives to reach other youth for Christ and to share His love and sacrifice with the youth of the region.  The Great River Region wishes you the very best and God’s blessing on your endeavor.
