On Thursday, April 11, Bethlehem Central High School senior Brianna Price accepted the Youth Award from the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce at the 34th Annual Chamber Awards Dinner.

At the dinner, the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce recognizes individuals from local businesses and the community for their contributions throughout the year. Among the awards given are:  Business Person of the Year, Citizen of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and the Youth Award. Price is receiving the award for her community contributions as a volunteer in many capacities, including with the Upstate Northeastern New York Chapter of the Chron’s and Colitis Foundation.

“I am so honored to have received this award,” said Price. “Not only have I been able to help people, but I have also learned the importance of collaboration and connecting with others.”

She also volunteers at the South End Children’s Cafe in Albany, which supports local area children by offering free, healthy meals along with homework help, academic enrichment, mentoring, exercise and participation in the arts. Price has also worked as a soccer referee and referee coordinator for the Town of Bethlehem, a camp counselor and lifeguard at Camp Chingachgook, and this past fall she interned with the Chamber. In addition, she was captain of the varsity soccer team and participates on varsity track and field.

“I commend Brianna for her commitment to the wellbeing of the community,” said Superintendent Jody Monroe. “It takes those like Brianna, who are kind, empathetic and diligent, to make our community a place where others can thrive.”

Price will be attending the University of Vermont in the fall where she plans to study marketing and continue her volunteering efforts.

Congratulations, Brianna! She is making BC proud
