Channel 7 News chose Michaela Fleming '16 and Gabby Leonard '16 as "Class Acts" for their leadership of the Thomas Upham House service activity. A Channel 7 News team, including anchor Christa Delcamp, came to Montrose during the school day to surprise Michaela and Gabby in class and tell them they had been chosen.
Gabby and Michaela founded the volunteer club, inviting their classmates to join them on a weekly visit to their elderly friends at Upham House, a local nursing home. "We go in order to put smiles
on the residents’ faces,” said Michaela, adding that the girls like to share the extra joy that young people have.
