Sammy

Volunteering at her local library has helped Sammy meet a school requirement for community service hours. But along the way to meeting that requirement, Sammy learned a few things. She learned that she likes to volunteer; she even volunteers beyond her required amount of hours. She also learned that the library offers more than an opportunity to shelve some books, as she has been an invaluable help in presenting crafts and other children's programming. Through truly immersing herself in something that some might consider a simple requirement toward graduation, Sammy has benefitted from the best rewards of volunteerism. She has helped her community by becoming a part of a team, she has given of herself to help others, and she has even found what she describes as "something better to do with the weekend besides playing video games."
