If you continue to challenge yourself along with what you have been doing so far, you will make your own success.”


In addition, Texas House of Representative Richard Peña Raymond told the students, “You are doing things that are worthy of people who are becoming adults. I hope that you will continue to try and inspire some of the people around you.”


The Border Patrol Youth of the Month program has recognized Laredo’s top high school seniors for 30 years.  Together, with the collaboration of program partners, one student is selected each month from the Laredo-area high schools as Border Patrol Youth of the Month. At the end of the school year, eleven Youth of the Month recipients are considered for the prestigious Border Patrol Youth of the Year award.
