Lapel Senior Tops Local Leaders of Tomorrow Program
April 4, 2007 - Molly Fields, a senior at Lapel High School, was named as one of 13 finalists in the “Indiana Leaders of Tomorrow” program and received a $500 cash award for college and $500 for her school, a donation from Embarq.
Embarq initiated the statewide “Indiana Leaders of Tomorrow” program and partnered with The Lapel Post and The Banner to recognize young leaders in Grades 9-12 for their leadership through community volunteerism, academic success and extracurricular activities.
Fields, the daughter of Bobby and Rhonda Fields of Anderson, was selected as a finalist of the “Indiana Leaders of Tomorrow” program for her involvement in a host of community and school volunteer activities, including teaching Sunday school and vacation Bible school. She coordinates blood drives, canned food drives and ‘Build a Bear” events for Riley Children’s Hospital patients. She serves as a positive role model for junior high girls and was instrumental in starting a junior high Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter. Fields is ranked at the top of her class and carries a 4.174 GPA.
The statewide winner of the “Indiana Leaders of Tomorrow” program was Erin Murphy of Columbia City High School in Columbia City. Murphy was selected as a finalist by a panel of judges from more than 200 nominations generated around the state.
“Embarq congratulates Molly and all of those who have been nominated in this program,” said Jack Moore, Embarq public affairs manager. “We are pleased to be able to recognize area youth for the leadership roles they are playing and hope to encourage others to become volunteers in our community.”
