2014 Recipient

Kayla Podell of Webster is a very busy young lady who takes initiative. While participating in National Honor Society events, mentoring her peers and leading her high school varsity basketball team she created an anti-bullying club called the Diversity Tribe. She saw a need and took action. Kayla believes one person, one kind act or word can make a difference. Her anti-bullying club’s vision is that no one should feel alone. She has created a safe space where the silent feel supported. We applaud her for standing up for those who feel marginalized and wish her the best as she pursues her education in the psychiatry field at Assumption College this fall.
