Donovan Frazier, of Benton Harbor, is the 2022 Midwest Youth of the Year and competed in the national competition in Los Angeles on Thursday.

BENTON HARBOR — Donovan Frazier of Benton Harbor may not have won the national title for Youth of the Year on Thursday, but he said the experience of competing in Los Angeles was life-changing.

“When I found out I didn’t win and that Asha from Washington (D.C.) won, I was actually really happy for her because she has a bright future, like all of us do,” said Frazier, who was named in July the 2022 Midwest Youth of the Year by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
