The Benjamin Templeton Scholarship “honors students with outstanding academic records who have worked to build strong high school communities by bridging gaps among economically, socially and racially diverse groups. Templeton Scholars will have demonstrated significant interest in issues of diversity education, tolerance and social justice,” said Hanover’s website.
Natalie receives this prized scholarship in recognition for her outstanding academic career at Assumption and her leadership in the AHS chapter of Operation Smile, a worldwide non-profit dedicated to helping children around the globe who suffer from cleft palate and cleft lip. In addition to serving as co-president of the Operation Smile chapter at Assumption, Natalie has traveled to Mexico to help provide aid to the children receiving cleft palate surgery. She also participated in Operation Smile’s International Student Leadership Conference in Los Angeles, California.
