Community Foundation Honors Grace Gallant '20 As 2019 Young Volunteer of the Year
Senior Grace Gallant was honored by the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County (CFAAC) as their 2019 Young Volunteer of the Year!
CFAAC’s Celebration of Philanthropy Awards Luncheon celebrates philanthropy in the community and the individuals, businesses and foundations who demonstrate outstanding generosity and community leadership. The Young Volunteer Award recognizes outstanding leadership and service in the community from a person 21 years of age or younger with a significant record of volunteerism.
After a hip injury forced her to reevaluate her competitive dancing career, Grace created Grace's Graceful Dancers to share her love of dance. For the past three years, her organization has taught dance to young children from underserved neighborhoods and has partnered with GiGi's Playhouse Annapolis to connect with children with Down syndrome and their siblings, at no cost to the participants.
Congratulations to Grace on this very well deserved honor!
