Faith Carroll
Grade 11, Age 17

“Faith Carroll has been the driving force behind this year’s regional drama festival,” art teacher Amanda DeCarlo said, noting Faith has helped by choosing a theme, arranging music and getting students to participate in the opening number and has spent her free period every day painting murals for the festival. “We have hundreds of kids coming from seven different schools, and without Faith, there would be nothing fun for them to see or do.”

Q: How do you serve the community?
A: I try to do a lot in the community, whether it be with the school or not. For this year’s one act competition hosted at the school, I’ve been helping a lot with designing the festival. I like to do volunteer work with my church, and I like to be as involved as I can be helping with projects around the community.

Q: Why are these important projects, and what will result?
A: My designing will not only help improve the one act festival, but hopefully make other people want to reach out and do what they can to help the community.

Q: What have you learned about your community from doing these projects, and how have they made you a better student?
A: I have been a part of the drama community since middle school and it’s a big part of my life, so I like to do what I can to make it as enjoyable of an experience for others as it has always been for me.
