Local graduate wins collegiate recognition
by Buff Lindau
Andrew C. Desiniotis, son of Lisa and Chris Desiniotis of Fremont and a student of Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, was named the 2005-06 recipient of the Saint Michael's College Scholarship and Service Book Award. The award recognizes students who demonstrate a commitment to volunteerism and leadership through community service. Saint Michael's, a liberal arts residential college, located in the Burlington area of Vermont, was founded on the belief that serving others is part of its Catholic tradition, and through the award seeks to honor those who demonstrate the true spirit of volunteerism.
Award recipients, named at schools throughout the country, are high school juniors who are inductees of the National Honor Society or an equivalent school-sponsored honors organization. They must demonstrate a commitment to service activities in high school or community organizations, taking leadership roles in these activities.
