Service students recognized
Community service hours are a part of every student at St. Thomas Aquinas Regional Catholic High School, but there always seem to be those students who go above and beyond their required hours in their efforts to serve as the “hands and feet of Christ.” These service hour recognitions are from the 2016-17 school year.
Senior Cole Tallo led the way with 101 hours. “A lot of my hours were probably hours spent helping people after the Flood,” said Tallo, “but I never expected it to add up to over a hundred hours." Coming in a close second place was junior Kashish Wadhwa with 95 hours. Other students who served more than 60 hours were junior Elizabeth McRae, and seniors Jacob Anthon and Trevor Hebert.
Students who performed 41-60 hours of community service were seniors Marla Bailey, Darian Boesch, William Daley, Lauren Davis, Dawson Gildig, Will Hetzinger, Ethan Jackson, Kade Ridgedell, and Lexie Williams; juniors Katie Amos and Caleb Stewart; and sophomores Bri Bonaccorso and Juliette LeRay.
Students who served 30 or more hours in the community were seniors David Anthon, Bailey Cavallero, Londyn Daniel, Larilyn Gay, Nicholas Hudspeth, Karlee Kraft, Brooke LaBorde, Leslie Matherne, Preston Phillips, Rachel Pistorius, Alex Theriot, Avry Townsend, and Jade Vappie; juniors Bailey Fugarino, Adam Hetzinger, Claire Krousel, Kristina LaCoste, Fresh Lekdee, Andrew Loyacano, Victoria Perrin, Lyndsi Pierre, Dane Schmitt, and Chelsealyn Vallery; and sophomores Kylie Baudean, Caroline Casey, Blake Estes, Kate Graziano, Darah Haidet, Maddie Pistorius, Mason Thompson, and Tim Tran.
