A pair of students were honored for their service to school and community last week.
On April 25 at Villanova Corporate Center, senior Sarah Hammaker was awarded a scholarship by the Emergency Aid of Pennsylvania Foundation, while freshman Taylor Tague was recognized with the body’s Founder’s Award. Tague was one of 20 recipients of the award, which celebrates students who have demonstrated good citizenship and leadership.
“She’s a lovely, poised, and respectful girl,” said PAHS guidance counselor Thi Weigand, who originally nominated Tague.
“All her teacher’s say great things about her, and I thought she really embodied the three aspects of the award: academics, extracurriculars, and, of course, personality.”
Tague plays field hockey and lacrosse for the high school and softball for the Phoenixville Youth Babe Ruth League, has been involved in food and diaper drives for local shelters, and recently volunteered for the Mom's House 5K run in Phoenixville.
She was also an essay winner in the Chester County Smoke Out contest.
