Abby is an incredibly determined young lady who bravely faces her challenges.

Abby is dedicated to working hard on her academics and last year she won a penmanship award. In addition, she was a two-time winner of the teacher’s award! Not willing to stop with these successes, she pushed herself to achieve the highest award possible for her third grade class – the Christian Character award! She is such a shining example for others to follow!
Aside from her outstanding character and academics, Abby loves acting! She was a cast member in the production of “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” at her community Performing Arts Center.

Her passion to give back and help others can be seen through Abby’s efforts to raise money for her school at their annual walk-a-thon. Even though she may not have the same mobility as her peers, she impressed everyone with her tenacity, her endurance, and her ability to walk so many laps.

“Despite her obstacles in life, we are so proud of Abby who always has a positive, can-do attitude no matter the challenge. It is so amazing to see her honored as a Superstar!”
