    Good Shepherd Alliance Elects Two Loudoun County Public School Seniors as Board of Directors

    Samuel Moore-Sobel (Stone Bridge) and Nicole Levinson (Loudoun County) are high school seniors elected to the 2011/2012 Good Shepherd Alliance (GSA) Board of Directors. The young adults will have full voting privileges and serve on the GSA outreach committee working shoulder to shoulder with the Board of Directors to promote GSA homeless services and programs in all twelve Loudoun County High Schools.

    The seniors were selected from a group of very robust candidates based on criteria that included volunteerism in social services, proven organizational skills and a passion to plan and initiate programs that involve high school youth in serving the needs of our indigent and homeless population.

    GSA collaborated with School Superintendent Dr. Edgar B. Hatrick, Anne Lewis LCPS Director of Student Services and Marilyn Jackson Supervisor of Guidance Services to solicit resumes from each Loudoun County high school. GSA Youth Director Steve D 'Argenio and Vice Chair Bob Ohneiser reviewed the rising senior candidates and then conducted interviews. Sam Moore-Sobel and Nicole Levinson were selected based on their ability to network with student organizations, youth groups and community leaders. Both students have presented strong verbal, written and team building skills. Individual responsibility and leadership were also factors in the decision making process.

    Nicole is a seventeen-year-old resident of Leesburg and a rising senior at Loudoun County High School and a first year Practical Nursing student at C.S. Monroe Technology Center. She plans to continue pursuing a career in nursing in either the military or through a travel agency. Nicole attends and leads worship for high school youth at Cornerstone Chapel.

    Samuel is a seventeen-year-old resident of Ashburn and a rising senior at Stone Bridge High School. He hopes to attend the College of William and Mary in the fall of 2012 to major in psychology with the intention of attending medical school and becoming a psychiatrist. Samuel attends McLean Bible Church and is actively involved in their ministry to special needs children.

    The Good Shepherd Alliance welcomes Samuel and Nicole to our board and acknowledges the two seniors will create a synergy in our local high schools and encourage more students to become champions for the homeless and near homeless in their respective communities.

    This is the third year that GSA has tapped into the youth community and elected student board of directors. Abigail Chapple (Loudoun County), Mandy Girolami (Briar Woods), Carleigh Wrobel (Stone Bridge) and Maryjacqueline Fox (Freedom) previously served as student board members.
