Anna Gosney, Gaida Marshall, and Ruby Mallory, St. Michael Catholic School
These girls were self-motivation to create a volleyball camp for students grades 2-6. They came up with a plan, presented the plan to Ms. Gatti, reserved the gym with the parish office, and wrote a letter home to parents. They charged $5 per student for the entire camp, which was eight sessions, and donated their proceeds to charity.
These girls truly epitomize the idea of "time, talent, and treasure." By taking their time to share their love for volleyball, while mentoring other students, and making a charitable donation at the same time, these girls have truly put their Catholic formation and education into practice through their service to others.

Delmy and Junior have been very dedicated to mastering the English language as their second language and their persistence, and dedication shines through with both displaying the characteristics of a St. Peter Hornet.
