Violet Richardson Award-I

As a member of the Youth Group at St. Bede the Venerable, Cailen Engle gives to those less fortunate than herself. To prevent homelessness, she takes every opportunity to repair homes in West Virginia. For those who are homeless, she cooks and shares meals at home and packs brown bags with food for delivery along Philadelphia streets.

Taking action to respect the dignity of others inspires her to become a better person. Cailen has received this award because she is a young woman with a history of volunteer activism who has identified a problem in our community and attempted to solve it.
