Middle School Students Honored at Masonic Lodge Celebration

After an evening of Irish food and dancing, the George Washington 1776 Lodge honored two Whitefish Bay Middle School students for their achievements, and gave each student $500 to donate to their charity of choice.

It was a celebration of youth at the Tuesday night.

Young dancers from the Rince Nia Academy of Irish Dance and Culture entertained the lodge and its guests with reels and jigs, and the lodge also heard presentations from its masonic youth organizations, Job's Daughters, Wisconsin DeMolay and Rainbow for Girls in Wisconsin.

The main event of the evening, though, was an award honoring two outstanding young people in the larger Whitefish Bay community. The award of "Girl of the Year" went to Amelia Windorski, and "Boy of the Year" went to Eric Schmid. Both Schmid and Windorski are members of the Student Council at .

Windorski serves as the Director of Community Activities for the student council, and she co-chaired the effort to collect  for Feeding America. She also co-chaired the middle school's annual Jump Rope and Hoop for the American Heart Association.

Schmid is the President of the Whitefish Bay Middle School Student Council, and he is also the Region IV Wisconsin Association of School Councils Junior High and Middle School President and State President.

The masonic lodge donated $500 to each student's charity of choice. Windorski chose to donate to the American Cancer Society, and Schmid chose to donate to the Milwaukee Rescue Mission's Joy House, which provides shelter for homeless women with children.
