Alyssa is a senior at Sandwich High School. She is a fixture in the Sandwich community whether it is volunteering for National Honor Society, working with middle-school students or teaching religious education class. Alyssa is the captain of the math team on top of her athletic commitment to cross-country and track and field. Since she was two years old, Alyssa has danced lyrical, ballet, tap, jazz, and hip-hop and hopes to one day learn how to Irish Step Dance. To Alyssa, being Irish means family, music and religion. She is part of a large extended family and feels fortunate that she is able to visit with them on a daily basis.
