Margaret Heine, West Springfield High School, 2007
Margaret is the second student honored by Grace Presbyterian this year. At West Springfield, she was active in theater, behind the scenes, so to speak. Margaret was a stage manager for the school edition of Les Misérables and for Annie, which won a Cappie award for stage crew. She was a member of the Thespian Honor Society, and it is no surprise that she lettered in theater and was named Honor Thespian in her senior year. Adding to her senior year honors, Margaret was Vice President of the German Honor Society, and received a Service Award from West Springfield.
Margaret's service activities included Tri-Cities Workcamp for five consecutive summers in July, and providing Katrina relief in Mississippi on two separate occasions. Margaret is attending Christopher Newport University (CNU), and in December 2008 was nominated and selected to be in CNU's Leadership Education and Development Program, a special program for students who show leadership potential. Way to go, Margaret! Congratulations on your achievements!
