Her leadership and character are always evident by demonstrating a positive attitude as well as an unbelievable to desire to lead. Amber continues to be a positive role model for her classmates and the entire school.

He worked so hard at learning his roles and represented himself and our school in the best possible light. One of the judges actually commented that he seemed like a real attorney.”
