The National Youth Council of Antigua & Barbuda is the latest organization to express condolences to the family of Amaya Yearwood. Yearwood was the elected treasurer of the National Youth Council in January 2020 and served in that capacity until her passing on Saturday. The council’s executive body said that their thoughts and prayers are with the family during the difficult time.
In a media statement, the executive stated that Yearwood will be remembered for her eagerness to serve in any given capacity, her passion for youth development and her constant positive outlook. The statement says
“We are honored to have been blessed with the opportunity to serve alongside such a beautiful and positive human being. Amaya will be sorely missed”
The National Youth Council is nonpartisan, and is responsible for all local youth organizations in which Yearwood played a major role.
