Marian Seniors Recognized by Bloomfield Hills Optimists
Three Marian High School seniors were recently recognized by the Bloomfield Hills Optimist Club for their service to school and community, and for their approach to volunteerism.
Seniors Jillian Davis, daughter of Nikki Voss-Motes and Alan Motes of Beverly Hills; Angelina Manjo, daughter of Fay and Imad Majo of West Bloomfield; and Caroline Russell, daughter of Megan and Shane Russell of Bloomfield Hills, were honored at the Optimists’ Youth Appreciation Breakfast.
Each year the Bloomfield Hills Optimist Club asks the schools in their district to nominate students to be honored.
Jillian Davis was honored for her dedicated commitment (320+ hours) to assisting and educating students on mental health issues through her work with Student Advisory Services (SDS), including being a member of the State Advisory Board. SDS is a Michigan based non-profit that seeks to ensure that our youth remain safe, healthy, and alcohol and drug free.
Angelina Manjo, who has three years of experience working with children through St. Thomas Catholic Chaldean Church, was honored for her work teaching catechism classes, tutoring children, working at vacation Bible school, and leading summer camps.
Caroline Russell was honored for her three years of working with Friendship Circle, a non-profit that works with special needs children and their families by offering recreational, social, educational and vocational programming. In addition to her own work with the organization, Caroline inspired a number of other classmates to also become involved.
