Congratulations to Mariah Reynolds, a 6th-grade student at the School for Creative and Performing Arts, for being honored with the President's Volunteer Service Award. President Obama recognized Mariah for work she initiated in 2008 called Just One Heart. Since 2008, Mariah has been responsible for seeing that over 9,000 cards and letters made their way to our active duty U.S. servicemen and women on Valentine's Day. In 2009, Mariah added Glove One Another to her efforts — supplying over 2,000 pairs of gloves, 400 pairs of socks and 35 coats to children at Saint Joe's Orphanage.
Thank you Mariah!
