Sophia Koolwick, a senior at Everest Collegiate High School, was recognized as one of Michigan’s top youth volunteers as a recipient of The Prudential Spirit of Community Award; an award that honors outstanding community service by young Americans.  Sophia served on the leadership team for her Catholic Youth Organization where she was responsible for planning the group’s annual Rainbow Youth Conference, hosting several segments during the conference, and facilitating weekly meetings.  This past summer, Sophia went on a service trip to Haiti with the group Missionaries of Charity and helped to run a summer day camp, comfort the sick and assist physicians during medical procedures.

Congratulations Sophia. We are proud of you!
