Maddie Campbell '19

Maddie is in her second year on the Service and Justice Leadership Board and this year she is the Chair of Service and Immersion trips as well as the co-Chair for the Service Kickoff. Throughout the year, Maddie will be mentoring IHOPE and Gorman Farm. Outside of the SJLB, Maddie plays Ultimate Frisbee and is involved in various clubs (Cougar Spirit, Worship Commission, Ambassadors, etc.) as well as her parish Youth Group.

While being involved in service, Maddie has found Liberty, KY and work through the Children’s Home to be her favorites. Liberty is such a unique place where life-long friendships can be formed, while the Children’s Home is more local with the same life-long friendships created. One of her favorite service memories comes from working with the Children’s Home. She, along with a few other girls, attended the Home’s homecoming.

Maddie says, “Service is not always about the preparation or hours of work done helping others, but rather what you surprisingly get out of it yourself. Knowing you helped someone, made a new friend, or just talked with someone who needed a listener is what service is all about to me!”

Rachel Creeden '19

Rachel is serving on the SJLB for her second year. She is a part of National Honors Society, Spanish Honors Society, a Premier Ambassador, a homeroom representative in Student Government, in Cougar Spirit, in Adopt-a-Sis, and dances at a studio, but of all of these extra-curriculars, service is the closest to her heart.

Rachel's favorite ways to serve others is cooking and serving meals at Ronald McDonald House, planning and leading trips to Liberty, Kentucky, and volunteering at dances at the Children's Home of Cincinnati. Rachel first had a leadership role in service her freshman year when she led the Spring Freshman Service Day, and was hooked ever since. Rachel is mentoring the Stop the Traffic and Reach for the Stars programs this year.

Rachel found her passion in serving others and loves it because service has given her amazing memories, friends, and lessons for life. Her favorite service memories come from countless hours on the Lange's farm in Liberty, KY, harvesting garlic in every step of the process, especially looking for the silver linings in the rainy days. Service has taught her to value simplicity, to radiate a positive energy, cherish the little wonders in life, but most importantly, to lead by example.

Olivia Doll '20

Olivia serves as the Service Kickoff Chair and Co-Chair of both One Time Events and Recognition. This is her first year on the board, but she’s very excited to be a part of it.

Olivia is in Respect for Life Club, GAA, Latin Honors Society, Vice President of Latin Club, and an Ambassador. She also plays softball for MND and travel for Valley Storm Premiere. Some of her favorite service projects that she’s involved in are Ronald McDonald House, BeYOUtiful, St. Vincent de Paul, and Sophomore Service Day. Along with other experiences, she was a leader for the Hand-In-Hand with Haiti project last year, and she’s mentoring the Ronald McDonald House project this year.

One of her favorite service memories is delivering bags of Thanksgiving meals to people in need around the Reading, Ohio area and gathering with other high schools to prepare and ship boxes of food for the homeless.

What Olivia enjoys most about service is seeing how others are impacted by her and her classmates’ work. She loves the feeling of making others’ lives better, even through small acts of kindness.

Emma Mitsch '20

Emma is in her first year on SJLB. She is chair of One-Time events and co-chair of Communication.

Emma is also involved in club soccer. In the winter, she collects boots from local police stations for homeless downtown in Washington Park. She also works with her grade school during various events throughout the year, such as gathering people to walk with them in the Memorial Day parade.

Emma’s favorite service project is the Liberty, KY trip specifically in the fall, and participating in visits to Gorman Farm. Emma has been a leader for multiple freshman service days & is mentor for FSD, sisters helping sisters, and Reach for the Stars.

Emma's favorite service memory is when she went to the Straul’s house in Liberty, KY where they picked peanuts, made homemade popcorn, and swung on a swing over the hill that overlooks the valley.

She enjoys doing service because it is proof that she and others are changing the world step by step. “I am helping others… a feeling unlike any other.”
