BA Youth of the Year Speaks at Golf Tourney

The Salvation Army Broken Arrow Boys & Girls Youth of the Year, Chelse Osburn, didn’t seem the least bit nervous telling her story to a room full of golfers and kids at the Boys & Girls Charity Golf Tournament held recently at the Tulsa Country Club. Chelse (pronouced Chelsea)  became a member of the BA club when she was four years old.  She says she didn’t have a choice – her grandmother is Janis Fraley, director of the club. “I love that she is my granny. She has played a big role in what I want to do in my life,” she said. After taking college basics at Tulsa Community College, Chelse plans to major in elementary education and wants to teach second grade. In addition to being a club member, she has also volunteered and worked at the club as a lifeguard and a Summer Camp counselor. “It’s the kids who inspire me,” Chelse said. And the kids in the room seemed pretty inspired by Chelse.
