The West Ashley Optimist Club held its Youth Appreciation Awards program this evening at Easterby's Restaurant on Highway 61 and non-profits in the area were invited to nominate a teenager for their community service. What an outstanding group of students.
My gal is second from the right - Ashley Freeman who is a senior at St. John's High School and has every intention of being an Ob/Gyn physician. She has volunteered in the Nursery at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital for two summers.
The other students are Alexis Hayes - Roper Hospital, Cameron Merriken - MUSC, Kyle Davis - St. Andrew's Parks & Recreation, Ashley Freeman and Hannah Smith - Trident Hospital. Congratulations!
After I introduced my nominee they surprised ME with an award! I was completely blown away. Thank you folks!
