SIKESTON -- While Matt Drake was named one of the Outstanding Young Missourians, he is quick to share the glory with the organization that helped him receive the honor.
"While I'm very humbled to be selected for this award personally, I think it really bodes well for the Sikeston Jaycees as a whole that not only I but a bunch of others from my chapter are worthy of this award," he said. "It's an honor for us all."
Drake was one of four honored by the Missouri Jaycees at the organizations' annual state convention in January.
