Alana Drew, 14 (Flint, MI)

Alana Drew, daughter of Jeffrey Drew and Jennifer Bentley, has proven that there is plenty more to becoming a teenager/young adult than what society has labeled. While only being 14 years old, she has already completed many activities and achieved accomplishments in her lifetime that many of her age are still aspiring to achieve.

Alana’s contribution to our community comes in the form of her participation in activities, which include: the Mackinac Island Governor’s Honor Guard, Girl Scouts, Junior Leadership School (part of the Genesee County Young Marines). In addition to these activities, she has participated in numerous community service events which includes painting ceiling tiles for the McLaren Cancer Ward, participated in flag ceremonies, and volunteering at the Genesee County Fair, Warrior Dash, and Bikes on the Bricks. Alana has accumulated over 100 community service hours in 2014 alone.

In addition, Alana currently holds a First Aid and CPR certification through the Red Cross and has been awarded the Presidential Volunteer Award. Alana attends Genesee Early College, a college preparatory high school and has maintained a 4.0 grade point average
