City Council recognized three outstanding local youth on April 6 who represented Commerce City at the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards (ACMCYA).
The ACMCYA is an annual award program that recognizes Adams County youth between grades 6-12, or those young people who may not currently be in a school setting but are 20 years of age or less, who have overcome personal adversity and created positive change in their lives.
The ACMCYA is a two-tiered program that honors nominees at the local government and county level. This award encompasses all youth who have overcome different types of adversity despite their circumstances. Youth are nominated in February by counselors, parents, coaches and teachers for local and county consideration.
The city’s three nominees were honored at an April 6 banquet at Buffalo Run Golf Course, including: Dominiq Miranda, Adam Terbest and Angelique Vargas. One of the city’s nominees, Angelique Vargas, was recognized at the county level banquet on April 28 as one of Adam County’s Top 20 students.
