Meredith Snowden Student Assistant

I've been working at the community center since the summer of 2016. I am a junior at Litchfield high school and I play soccer and tennis on the school teams. I have also participated in the school musical all three years of high school so far. I am in multiple clubs at school, such as the Acts of Kindness club and Peer Mediation. Being a National Honor Society student, I enjoy helping people in my community and being a leader in my school. In my free time I like to make art, go shopping, and hang out with my friends. By having this job at the Litchfield Community Center, I am becoming more involved in the community and practicing skills I will use throughout my life.
