Abbey Engelmann was helping to recruit Girl Scouts at the Back to School Fair. All the students in attendance were entered into a “shopping spree” raffle and Abbey was one of the two winners. When Abbey made it home, she told her mom she was not supposed to be the winner. They were able to contact the representative from Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital, who organized the raffle, and asked if she could give the shopping spree to another recipient. Abbey generously donated her shopping spree to another student, allowing them to go shopping with a doctor in her place. So today we honor Abbey Engelmann for doing the right thing!
Thanks to her kindness and generosity, another student benefited. Amy Rowland, who nominated her, stated, “We are proud of Abbey for thinking of others before herself and this is why we think Abbey is a great example of students who Do The Right Thing.” You really are a great example Abbey! We are so proud of you!
