RBGA Young Adults Committee Recognition

posted May 11, 2017, 9:38 AM by John Pearson

EAWR senior, Haley Shewmake, and junior, Nic Hayes, were recognized at the Center in downtown Alton this morning for their work with the YAC in engaging in community service for their chosen charity: the Salvation Army. 

The Riverbend Growth Association sponsors the Young Adults Committee, which is composed of two students each from Alton, CM, EAWR, Marquette, and Roxana High Schools and provides them meeting time and space to work with some designated non-profit groups in the area. Each school's representatives have a designated non-profit organization to assist. 

Haley spoke about how meaningful their service was and the learning experience they had during the 2016-17 school year, and apologized for Nic, who could not attend.

Also introduced was EAWR's newest representative, Kate Booten, sophomore, who will join Nic Hayes next year on the YAC. 
Congrats, Haley on your two years of great service to the Young Adults Committee. Good luck and best wishes to Kate and Nic in 2017-18!
