LEINGANG, Message Editor "Volunteering has changed my whole outlook on life," wrote Melanie who is entering her senior year at, Memorial High School, lie. The 16-year old has been involved ill the Junior Mental Health "for a long time," and she said, "the rewards from helping have been better than any gift I have ever received." : Pulcini said that through the JMHA she has been able to volunteer at many places such as the Evansville State Hospital, nursing homes, soup kitchens, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Evansville Philhar- Orchestra, the Evansville Museum, Mesker Park Zoo and her "per- favorite" -- the Evansville Psychiatric Children's Center. "I go weekly to the (Children's Center) to volunteer one-on-one with One child. Not only do I limit myself to him, but I've also had the chance to get to meet and spend time with every child housed there. The children :at the EPCC are limited to many things and letting them know that some- really cares means more to them than words can express. Just seeing a eye gleam with gratitude is worth more than any thank you I could ever receive." Pulcini has found time for other activities. She represented Memorial :i I'Iigh School in 1991 at the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Seminar. She attended "Presidential Classroom: in Washington, D.C. m a week devoted learning about the federal government. She was also chosen as Memo- rial's delegate to Hoosier Girls State. "At HSG I learned exactly step-by-step how Indiana government re- ally works. Each girl must run for an office, whether it be city, county or state. I ran for Mayor of my city, Peacock City, and believe it or not, it was a dead tie. What did they do? They do what they would do in real life: flip a coin. Yes they really flipped a coin and the other girl was chosen. It was better that way because I was appointed Executive Secretary to the Secre- tary of State and I had my own desk in the State Office. .... The best part of my week was when I was chosen as one of the Out- Standing Girls. Being selected as an Outstanding Girl is the highest honor One can receive at Girls State and I was very honored." After the awards ceremony, Pulcini was honored aain  the women charge appeared to be so pleased with her accomplishments, they plan invite her back next year as a counselor. ,:: MELANIE PULCINI MARK SANTILLAN Mark Santillan was the 1992 Hugh O'Brian Youth Foundation Lead- ership Seminar participant from Memorial. Santillan has been active at Memorial as student council president and class president. He is a mem- ber of the Diocesan Executive Youth Board. He has also served as president of the Junior Mental Health Association. "The most rewarding type of volunteer work to me is being at the Children's Psychiatric Center," Santillan said. "There is nothing better than to know that you have helped put that smile on the child's face." Pulcini sums up the reward of volunteer work as she has experi- enced it. "It's so wonderful to see teenagers working together to make our community a better place to live in. Never in my life have I seep so many teens, even those who are lin:lited themselves, do so many wonderful things for someone else. Even though we get no tangible reward, the pay back we get is immeasurable."
