Lance B., 2017 Young Man of the Year
Lance B. is the 2017 Young Man of the Year for Passport to Manhood. The 17-year-old Benton Harbor High School junior was raised in Benton Harbor by his mom, Penny White. A big brother to two younger sisters, Lance works hard to be a good role model and lead them in the right direction. His favorite subject in school is social studies, where he says, “I can learn about the past, how we got where we are now, and how to make things better.” After graduation, Lance plans to attend college and study criminal justice. He hopes to one day work for the FBI. Since joining the Club in elementary school, Lance says the Passport to Manhood program has had the biggest impact on him. In the program, he has found peers who face the same struggles and work together to improve. “The smallest things can make the biggest changes,” Lance says.
