“I love helping out in the community because it never ceases to amaze me how one small thing I do, can have such a large impact on someone else. I often volunteer in the child care programs and events and I’ve witnessed firsthand how a simple conversation with a child can change their whole day and during all my years of volunteering, I’ve gained so much more than I could’ve ever given. I wouldn’t want to spend my weekends doing anything other than volunteering because I know someone is benefiting, even if I can’t directly see it and it’s the most rewarding feeling in the world.”

 

Allie carries a 3.7 grade point average and was inducted into the National Honor Society last year. She has committed to play softball next season at Belmont Abbey College.
