Our first Dream Maker is Riley Schelp. This Lutheran High School South Senior brings smiles to everyone she meets. She is an honors student and cross country track star.

 

After the tragic drowning of a refugee classmate, Riley organized her swim team to teach free swim lessons to refugee children.  The program will continue after Riley graduates. For 7 years, Riley has participated in spring break mission trips to Belize, working with pre-school kids, delivering food, organizing sports camps and visiting nursing homes.

Riley will attend the University of Alabama this fall, to study Spanish and International Relations. She plans to continue to run track and work with refugee families.

 

Thank you, Riley!
