We congratulate Junior Patricia Mendes of Rochester for being selected by the Old Rochester Regional High School faculty and staff.
Patty is a junior who worked diligently with the ORRHS Marine’s Toys for Tots toy drive before the holidays. Patty helped to make signs for the school, collect toys, and bring them to be wrapped and sorted. Patty also gave a plug for the fundraiser, whenever she could, to adults around the building.
It really was an event that she believed strongly in and appreciated her ability to give back to younger children. She worked closely with Ms. Graser and spent Saturdays in December helping to give out the toys. Patty was complimented by the organizer of the event and invited back to participate again.
