Albany - One very busy young lady is recognized for her work in the community. Fifteen-year old Jacqueline Childress received the young citizenship award from the Southwest Georgia Exchange club.

Childress is active in school. She's in the band, Beta Club, on the academic team and also takes dance lessons. Club members told Childress that she was the clear winner because of her overall excellence. 

She said she's honored.  "I've realized being a good citizen helps make our country and help make good students and people in the workforce," said Childress.

She also got a $100 check. That should help with spending money as she travels to Europe this summer with the People to People ambassador program.
