Intro Sample...


Having been actively part of the St. Thomas More community, Harvest Hike, the activity I volunteered in, felt familiar. I attended St. Thomas More School up until eighth grade and still actively attended church with my family. I also attended Religious Education classes in ninth and tenth grade, and in those years I had to complete twenty hours of volunteering.
