The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Medicine Board of Visitors will host a library dedication in April in honor of Hot Springs? Kye Masino.
The dedication of the Kye Masino Family Resource Library will take place at 2 p.m. April 5 at the Genetics Clinic in the Freeway Medical Center in Little Rock.
Masino, an eighth-grade home-schooled student, is the founder of KYE-YAC (Youth Advisory Council) International, the Hot Springs philanthropic organization that was created ?by kids, for kids.?
Since the organization’s inception in 2009, KYE-YAC has supported more than 100 causes, contributing more than $100,000 in charitable giving to Arkansas youth.
The organization’s all-youth board chooses children’s charities to support after in-depth research and numerous site visits.
Masino was also recently announced as a prize winner in C-SPAN’s national 2013 StudentCam competition. He will receive $750 for his documentary, ?Government Waste,? about the expenditure of taxpayer money and the federal deficit, which will air on C-SPAN at 5:50 a.m. April 3.
