Alyssa Schlette '21 achieved her Girl Scout Gold Award this month. She partnered with The Turning Point and The Outreach program at her church to help create awareness about the effects and stigma of sexual violence in the community. She created a donation bin for the the Turning Point Hope Kits, which provide essentials such as toiletries to those in need. Over 100 kits were made by Alyssa and volunteers. 

Kate Stark '22 completed the US Equestrian Athlete Lettering Program. This program was developed to provide recognition for the accomplishments of young equestrians and encourage their future involvement in equestrian sport. 

Kalli Ratan '22 and Sterling Ratan '24, along with their parents, have worked to manufacture cloth masks to sell through their family's small business, Double R Brand. Proceeds from mask sales have gone to the North Texas Food Bank. Their efforts resulted in a donation of $20,000 to NTFB, netting 60,000 meals to neighbors in need.
