Randi Schamerhorn, Leesville Junior High School, helped promote and organize the Vernon Parish Cystic Fibrosis Skate-A-Long. The activity involved more than 400 community members raising money for Cystic Fibrosis research. As a Cystic Fibrosis sufferer, Schamerhorn spoke of her illness at local schools to encourage students to support the event. The annual event raised over $5,000 for the National Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
"I have learned that most people are interested in helping others, especially if they really understand the cause."
