Service Quotation

"The youth of every generation has stood in a critical position, for the scales have been tipped one way or the other by the training they received from their elders. This is particularly true today. Our boys and girls have greater freedom, exercise greater power, and have more opportunities for both good and evil, than ever before. How important it is, therefore, that youth’s great possibilities for good be realized and developed!" Angus S. Mitchell, 1948-49 RI President

Annie has been very active providing service to the community. She has volunteered at Chester City Team Ministries for ten years. She started and participated in many other organizations and activities such as “The Bucket Fillers”, the Superintendent’s Policy Committee, planning the District Wide MLK Day celebration, and volunteering at political campaigns. Annie intends to major in political science on a pre-law track.
Luke DiBonaventura lives in Swarthmore with his mother Tracy, father Stephen, and two younger siblings. He plans to attend American University in Washington D.C.
Luke volunteer services included “City Team” in Chester, “Books through Bars” in Philadelphia, and “Leap into Learning” in Delaware County. He also volunteered at several political campaigns.
Luke plans to major in Communication, Legal Institutions, Economics, and Government. His long-term goal is to be a public-interest lawyer.
