Gabriela Ruiz

Gabriela Ruiz Glassboro 2017Volunteer work has been an important part of Gabriella Ruiz’s high school career. Through her involvement in various school organizations, she has been able to take part in countless fundraising and charity events.

While vice president of the Rotary Interact club, she assisted with basketball concession sales, and selling baked goods to fundraise for Camp Nejeda, a camp for children with disabilities. Gabriella has taken part in planning events such as Relay for Life and the ARC’s Camp Sun Fun 5k. This year a major project will be the Leukemia and Lymphoma Student of the Year Campaign. This program is a fundraising competition in which nominated students compete over the course of six weeks in honor of a local teen patient battling cancer. Gabriella’s efforts, along with those of her fellow competitors, will directly benefit LLS’s National Capital Area Chapter.

In addition to her work with Rotary Interact and LLS, Gabriella is a member of the following extra curricular organizations: the Gay-Straight Alliance, Philosophy Club, Science Club, Mock Trial and the Outdoors Club. Thank you for your service Gabriella!

In the past five years, Isaiah Eila has spent over one hundred and fifty hours volunteering with TOPSports, and counts it as his favorite activity. This designation is no small feat considering the breadth of events and organizations Isaiah has been involved in.

Isaiah’s service projects span from working at the Ronald McDonald House and collecting food for the United Way to visiting local nursing homes and picking up trash for the Gloucester County Clean Communities program.

Several local fundraisers he’s participated in include the Buddy Walk, MS walk, Camp Sun N Fun, Relay for Life, and the Autumn Pasquale 5k Run for HOPE. International organizations such as Rotary’s Polio eradication, 4 South Sudan, and Oxfam Unwrapped have also been the beneficiaries of Isaiah’s fundraisers.

This past summer, Glassboro High School sent Isaiah to represent the school at RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) and the American Legion’s Boys State program. At Glassboro, Isaiah is president of his school engineering club and is a member of Mock Trial and the Interact club. Recently, he has been awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award.
