Michaela Poliquin Award for Education

i Jun 20th by

We are honored to have awarded the second annual Michaela Poliquin Award for Education to Austin Gibbs! At KRHS scholarship night, Austin was surprised by being selected as the recipient for this very special award. Kayla Poliquin was a long time KYC member, who passed away in 2023 due to health complications. We have all been broken hearted at this loss, as she was so near and dear to so many of us at the KYC. We are delighted to honor her memory by creating an annual award in her name. Congratulations Austin, we know you are destined for a life full of joy, friendship, and connection- all of the same things Michaela brought to those around her.


NAMI NH’s Magnify Voices at New England College

i Jun 5th by

KYC recently attended NAMI NH’s statewide Magnify Voices Expressive Arts event. Three KYC teens submitted artwork around the theme of mental health. One of KYC‘s teens was selected as a finalist. During the event, we all viewed the art show, took a tour of New England College in Henniker, enjoyed dinner together, and celebrated everyone who participated in this event. We are so proud of all of our teens who take these types of opportunities and put themselves out there. It truly does pay off! @magnifyvoicesnh

We Will Remember at the KYC

i May 29th by

It was an honor to participate in the @wewillrememberdogtag mission last week. The KYC learned about 15 year old Connor’s mission to not forget any fallen soldier. KYC teens who wanted to participate, took a dog tag with the name of a fallen U.S service member, their rank, the war they fought, and their home town. People who take on the responsibility of owning a tag are asked to remember, honor, and speak the name regularly of the fallen soldier. This Hampton NH based non-profit is remarkable- learn more about it here! @wewillrememberdogtag

We are so proud and in awe of our awesome teens! Thanks for making the night so special!

Art for All with Governor Wentworth Arts Council

i May 21st by

The KYC attended @governorwentworthartscouncil Art for All exhibits yesterday! We started at Huggins Hospital to view Beloved; A Portraiture Group Show, with work by Kristiina Sakai, Gabriela Six, Nancy Sabino, and Cheryl Shanahan. Cheryl spoke with the group about her art and answered some thoughtful questions from teens. Next we moved over to @meredithvillagesavingsbank in Wolfeboro, to see the exhibit “More than the Sum of its Parts” by Robert De Mario. We learned about the artist’s process and participate in another Q and A. A huge thank you to @governorwentworthartscouncil for this experience and we are looking forward to continuing to participate in Art for All!
