Honor Roll student Megan Mettler has a heart for volunteerism and concern for her community that is truly remarkable. The seventh grader at Fairmont’s Anaheim Hills campus is involved in a number of charitable organizations including Adopt-a-Soldier, where she corresponds and sends care packages to a US solider overseas, and Sunday Nights Together, a program that provides a Sunday evening meal to hundreds of homeless in our community each week. Megan has also started an organization to promote literacy called Kids READ! She has collected over 13,000 books which she has distributed all over the county to individuals and organizations. Megan’s involvement in community service is very hands-on. She helps prepare the meals, set-up and clean-up for Sunday Nights Together. She stays connected to her adopted soldier by corresponding frequently and sending a monthly care package. Megan saves one-third of her weekly allowance, which her parent’s match, then donates the money to the charity of her choice. For fun, the selfless teen, enjoys reading, going to musicals and attending UCLA games with her family.
