TS82 High School 2013 Northview Hannah Edwards and Chattahoocee Jay Reynolds

Chattahoochee High School – Jay Reynolds
Northview High School – Hannah Edwards

Jay Reynolds proved to be a leader in school, for his community and for his team. He excels in tennis but what impressed us the most was his involvement in Chattahoochee’s  No Place For Hate Club.  He has helped start and run this club which we feel is a positive contribution for the youth in our community by bringing awareness to preventing and ending bullying and cyber-bullying.  Jay is involved in many other activities at school and seemed to understand that loving life, laughing often and playing hard all go hand in hand in being a well balanced teen.

Hannah Edwards used her time and talents to give back while playing varsity soccer and achieving a 3.75 GPA.  She started the Mission for Maddie Foundation to raise funds for a friend who lost her mother to cancer.  In 2012 Hannah went on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic to share her love of soccer and God.  She has participated in various community activities including the Will to Live races and the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics as well as volunteering at her church.  Hannah believes that nothing great in life can be accomplished unless your heart is 100% in it. Her soccer coach says that everything she attempts is with such strong desire to succeed that she lifts others around her in the process.
