Meredith Tassey

Maine

Meredith Tassey, Catherine McAuley High School, Portland, headed an AIDS awareness program called "A Promise to Remember." She co-wrote a grant application to The San Francisco Names Project and received funding for educational materials, an exhibition of four panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, and AIDS education in the classroom. Her school was the first in Maine to develop such a program.

"I encourage volunteering to everyone because of the unique and varied experiences it provides."
