Albany-- An Albany senior is named "Youth of the Year."

The Exchange Club presented Deerfield-Windsor student Albert Kim with the $500 dollar scholarship. Besides being a tennis ace and math wiz, Kim is also a role model for younger kids.

He has spent the last four years tutoring children at the Boys and Girls Club in math, "I've always been pretty good at math. So I thought I could help the kids especially since they all had a similar problem year in and year out."

Kim says the many of the kids didn't have the basic concepts down--so he organized a summer math clinic. Kim will attend Duke University in the fall, planning to major in either biology or chemistry.
