Smyth, a past two-term mayor and life-long resident of Santa Clarita, lauded the work of the SCV Youth Project for its stewardship to youth who face such serious issues as drug/alcohol abuse, anger, divorce, peer pressure, suicide, grief/loss and depression.

“The SCV Youth Project plays such a critical role in our community, particularly in our school system,and I am just proud to be associated with such an amazing organization,” Smyth said.

Having served on the board of the SCV Youth Project for more than five years, Smyth expressed his thanks to the leadership of the non-profit organization for its continued dedication to helping youth achieve their full potential in life.

“While it is with great pride that I accept the title of ‘Chairman Emeritus,’ the true credit belongs to the entire board and staff who work so hard on behalf of the young people of Santa Clarita,” the 38 th district assemblyman added.

Presenting honors to Smyth were Kim Goldman, executive director of the SCV Youth Project, and John Musella, board present of the SCV Youth Project. Also in attendance were SCV Youth Project board members along with local dignitaries and business leaders.

Musella, who recently succeeded long-time SCV Youth project board president Stacy Miller, said that he is looking forward to helping to meet the needs of the valley’s youth as the organization and the community continues to grow.

Founded in 2000 with the concept of providing hassle-free and confidential counseling to teens, the SCV Youth Project, has gone on to expand its program to include peer counseling to the high schools in the William S. Hart District and is currently expanding to include the district’s junior high schools
