William Penn Charter
My son is a very unique person he's a very hard worker on and off the field he volunteers every year for jumping for a purpose for veterans in Virginia Beach and grows vegetables for them in our yard. He was just selected to play on team USA Stars and Stripes Global ambassador team only 33 kids in our country were selected and will be playing in Ireland in March. At 5'4 210 nose guard. Everyone told him he's too small kids laughing at him on the line he's killing it. I think it's amazing when a parent says Wayne's your son my son talk about him all the time he's a loving senior who looks out for everyone and truly care about everyone. He's grades are amazing and his college choices are as well. So truly that's why I believe my son should be chosen. Thank you Wayne's mom Judy.
New Foundations Charter HS
Meadow has been on volleyball and lacrosse since freshman year, she starts volleyball workouts (voluntary) in the summer works so hard to get in shape then tryouts start, she never just assumes she's back on the team she works her butt off to get back on. She practices EVERY day even when there is no school, her practices are 2-4 hours depending if there's a pre-workout or they need extra practice. She still manages to get straight A's, help around the house and work a part time job. She's not a sore loser and knows If they don't win the game it's because the other team played better that day. She stays extra hours to help other girls on JV team get their serve better etc. she is the kindest, smartest, hardest worker I know and would do anything for anyone and just loves to stay busy and has so much team spirit and amazing friendships with her teammates and great respect for her coaches. GO BULLDOGS #4!!!
Phoenixville High School
Christina has been competing in local youth triathlons since she was 9 years old. When she got older, she joined a team that trains together from January through July. The team competes in races around the country. From August through December, Christina runs cross country and swims for her high school in order to stay in shape. She exhibits her grit and self discipline when she rides on her bike trainer at home by herself, goes for solo runs or swim laps on her own. When training with her team, she is committed to cycling outside in the cold winter months and running in the summer heat. This year, her goal is to qualify for the elite youth race at Nationals in Ohio.
