Club Alumna Does Big Things

You may have heard of former Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale - Red Mountain Branch Club member Daryl Lynn Jay. She was their Youth of the Year in 2004, and is a member of the Komatke Village of the Gila River Indian Community. She also won the titles of Junior Miss Gila River, Miss Gila River, and Miss Indian Arizona. She was a member of the NCAI’s Youth Commission, Governor Napolitano’s Youth on Education Board Member, and Akimel O’odham PeePosh Youth Council Member and President. Daryl Lynn was also a game room instructor and teen director at the Boys & Girls Club of the East Valley.

Daryl Lynn still hasn’t slowed down!  She is currently majoring in public administration at Scottsdale Community College, and wants to pursue a master’s degree and maybe a doctorate. She works for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Community’s Office of Congressional and Legislative Affairs as a youth development specialist. Daryl Lynn also runs a non-profit called Shining Stars. Shining Stars helps young Pima women with life skills, self esteem, and goal-setting.

Daryl gives back to the community by volunteering at the Komatke Branch of the Boys & Girls Club of the East Valley and the Clubs in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Community. Her family’s support was important in getting her where she is today. Congratulations on your accomplishments, Daryl Lynn!
