Gabby Every, a senior at Bay Port High School, was selected as one of Wisconsin’s top youth volunteers of 2017 by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a nationwide program for honoring young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism. Prudential representative James Lonick presented Every with an engraved bronze medallion and cited her accomplishments at the Howard-Suamico School District Board of Education meeting April 10.

Every served in a leadership role as the Wisconsin DECA Vice President of Community Service, during which time she established goals for the state organization in the areas of community engagement and involvement. Locally, Every worked with classmate Maggie Murphy to organize the “Bay Port vs. Cancer” fundraiser, pregame charity event at a Pirates home football game that raised more than $2,300 for the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund. The event, which also aimed to support families in HSSD who had experienced cancer, featured two local students who survived the disease and were given the opportunity to run out on the field with the varsity players.
