Althea Olsen, Veritas Editor-in-Chief

Erin Gardner, Jessica Driscoll, Claudia Abouzeid and Lauren Draicchio with their Top Dog Awards!

Jessica Driscoll

Jessica was selected to travel to Guatemala on a service based trip where she would give dozens of Mayan indigenous people sustainable access to clean drinking water and teach health and hygiene workshops in indigenous communities. Jessica did not let the cancellation hinder her. She was the driving force behind organizing the gift wrapping efforts for the 2nd Annual Giving Tree! Jess came to school during her senior privilege time to wrap books and brought a bright and positive energy with her! Jessica is also a two sport athlete competing on the volleyball and lacrosse teams.  She is an incredibly kind-hearted and genuine young woman and I know that her future holds big things!

Erin Gardner

Erin was selected to travel to Guatemala on a service based trip where she would give dozens of Mayan indigenous people sustainable access to clean drinking water and teach health and hygiene workshops. Erin asked how she could contribute in addition to donating a book to the 2nd Annual Giving Tree. She came to school during her senior privilege time to wrap books! Erin has such a positive way of changing the world in which she lives and I’m sure her future will be impactful! Erin is a member of Student Government Council and competes on the lacrosse team. She also works at Southwood Nursing Home.

Claudia Abouzeid

Claudia Abouzeid is a senior who will be graduating in three years. Committed to her studies, Claudia knew early in her high school career she wanted to graduate early and then attend college to continue her studies. Claudia’s compassion and societal awareness is indicative of her depth as a person. She is enthusiastic and passionate about social justice. She is a kind, dedicated student, and her commitment to greater equality and fighting injustice makes me proud to have her as a student. She plans to study psychology.

Lauren Draicchio

Lauren Draicchio is a four year player of varsity  lacrosse and also serves as the team captain.   She has served as an executive and general  member of the student council, a freshman mentor as well as class president.  Lauren is a youth cheerleading junior coach and a youth basketball referee.  She plans to attend a four year college and major in nursing with hopes of becoming a Beyond Borders nurse, traveling to provide healthcare to less fortunate children and communities. Lauren was selected to travel to Guatemala on a service based trip where she would give dozens of Mayan indigenous people sustainable access to clean drinking water and teach health and hygiene workshops in indigenous communities. As soon as the second year of the Giving Tree book drive was announced, Lauren jumped at the opportunity to get involved and spread holiday cheer. Lauren came to school during her senior privilege time to wrap books. Lauren is a shining star and we know she will continue to impact her community during her next chapter!

Thank you Dr. Harrison, Ms. Kemp, and Ms. O’Brien for coordinating the event and the rewards given, and congratulations again to the RHS Top Dogs 2021.
