Camden High School senior Khadija Murphy holds up a “check” representing the $5,000 in scholarship money she earned April 26 for being named the South Carolina State Youth of the Year by the Boys & Girls Club. She already earned $2,500 for being the Crescent Region’s Youth of the Year in late March, and now moves on to compete for the Southeast Region title in Atlanta on June 19. If she wins, Khadija will earn another $10,000 in scholarship money and go after the national title later this year. - photo by Martin L. Cahn/C-I
