Sami is the President of the FCCLA and her group made the School News Paper for helping out with Salavtion Amry!

I don't know that I mention it but since school started Sami joined student councils etc and decided to be the President of this particular group because they do charitable work for people in need. They have earned money from the Winter Carnival to provide blankets and baby hats for the local NICU, and gave money to The Air Force Village here were tons of Retired Military Veterans stay and for Christmas they worked with the homeless and the Salvation Army. Sami made tons of these newspaper wreaths at home here for people to put on their doors this Christmas and her and her friends helped carry wrapped gifts to peoples cars who couldn't afford gifts to buy for their own children. She came home so full of pride and sorrow for these people and has grown to have The Heart of a True Volunteer. She also earn college credit for doing this believe it or not. Its crazy to me all the things she does around San Antonio by making Honor Roll that gives her college credit already in the 7th grade but, as we keep telling her, "Push forward, keep up the good grades and a scholarship will be waiting for you so you can go to college somewhere." She is pretty proud of what she has done as we as her parents are as well. I thought I would just share the page of the newspaper she and her friends were in.
