WILLIAM L.....ALWAYS SHARING A SMILE!
William L. has spent the last 2 ½ years here at Vanderheyden, and has made a lasting impression on our community with his smile and his actions.
Our 12th Grader from Queens was the recipient of the "Royal Stars Award", that was given out at our Graduation Ceremony on June 24th.
William says he loves to help fellow residents out whenever they need, and in whatever way he can. He said he does this by talking to them about their problems, and guides them into doing the right thing in situations.
Not only does William use his smile to make others happy, he makes a difference in many lives by volunteering in the Vanderheyden community, helps with a variety of chores, and tries to be respectful of all.
When he's not volunteering or helping others, William is an active participant on several of our sports teams, which include track, flag football, snowboarding and soccer. William can also be found "under the boards" on the basketball court as a Small Forward, and behind the plate as a Catcher on Vanderheyden's softball team. He was also one of Vanderheyden's "Team of Five" who won several medals in the New York State Special Olympics held in June at SUNY Brockport.
William definitely fits the bill of a Vanderheyden "Royal Star" recipient!
