The remarkable ladies fulfilled their commitment of philanthropy, leadership and culture over six years with both grace and determination, making a meaningful impact to their communities and one another. The devotion is impressive by any measure, especially when considering the many competing priorities that fill the time and attention of today’s teens. During their six years, these young ladies have grown into admirable women for their leadership and compassion for the communities in which they live and serve.
