Five students have been recognized by the McLean Citizens Association as having demonstrated outstanding character through their contributions to the community.  They are: freshman Bryce Liquerman, for his coaching of adult Special Olympic teams;  freshman Sara Vavonese, for her work helping foster children participate in gymnastics; junior London Russell, for his enormous contributions to McLean SHARE Technology; senior Leena Raza, for her work in raising awareness of cardiac health in teens; and senior Emma Chamberlayne, for her work as co-chair of Relay for Life. All of them have demonstrated respect, responsibility and citizenship through their work and are examples for other teens.

They are among the students who will be recognized on Saturday at McLean Day with a certificate presented by a member of the FCPS Board. Congratulations!
