Two are Students of the Month


Two students were recently honored as the Ambler Rotary Club's Students of the Month for December. They were honored at a  luncheon meeting  at the William Penn Inn.  They were recognizes for their work and as role models for the "Service Above Self" Rotary motto.
Brenda Spinelli is a senior at Gwynedd Mercy Academy. Judith Owens (V.P. for Academic Affairs) writes: "Brenda is the 'go-to' person when something needs to be accomplished. She is a cheerful, enthusiastic young lady who has strong feelings and opinions that reflect her value system. When volunteers are needed you can count on Brenda to raise her hand and see the task through to the end. Her motto in the Mercy family is 'the more the merrier,' and her welcoming spirit insures that everyone is included." Brenda is a member of the Gwynedd Mercy volleyball team, and an active participant in the Ministry and Service Organization where she is responsible for planning and organizing trips to a residence for formerly homeless women.

Cori Rosen is a senior at Germantown Academy. Peter McVeigh (Coordinator for Community Service at GA) writes: "Cori is an outstanding student, primarily because she genuinely cares about matters of the mind. Continually demonstrating all the qualities that underscore the behavior and attitude of the outstanding student, she is always ready to discuss the most significant issues under consideration, whether they be historical themes or concepts related to more contemporary events." Cori is co-chair for the Ethics Society and a senior leader in the Community Service Organization, which works with the Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard in Ambler, St. John's Hospice, the Intensive Care Unit at Children's Hospital and the Make-A- Wish Foundation.
