Will Rauer demonstrated TEAMWORK by helping several of his peers download and open a physics simulation.

Cole Ventura demonstrated KINDNESS when he offered his chair to a teacher who was standing in the back of the cube during a college counseling meeting. After she declined, he walked all the way around to the back of the office to grab an extra chair and roll it in. He then asked her to please take a seat, as he felt bad that she was standing. What a gentleman!!

My name is Trey Zamora and I am collecting used soccer and volleyball items for an orphanage Casa de Esperanza (House of Hope) that is located in Caranavi, Bolivia. My Capstone project is called Pitch Of Promise in honor of my father who had a passion for soccer and was a volunteer soccer coach at North Meck Soccer Club (now Carolina Rapids) before he passed. He was born in La Paz, Bolivia. This orphanage has boys and girls of all ages that love to play soccer and volleyball or a version of volleyball called “Wallyball”. I visited the orphanage this summer and they are grateful for anything we can provide (clothes, cleats, shin guards, balls, etc…). You can drop off the items in Mr. Arthur’s room, my advisory through Thanksgiving. I have a bin located in his room.
