This 13-year-old Voorhees native has spearheaded a significant restoration project for her Bat mitzvah—restoring a 200-year-old Torah that had survived the Holocaust in Europe during World War II. With funds raised from selling bracelets and also the support of Congregation Beth El, Schwarz will restore the lettering and be the first to read from the Torah, which was found and rescued from Czechoslovakia, since it was destroyed.

Morgan Kelly
Four years ago, Kelly experienced her first seizure, but after years of testing and treatments, she is finally seizure free. Kelly was diagnosed with epilepsy, which caused non-convulsive seizures that medication wasn’t able to cure. After an appointment with Maryland Hospital, Kelly underwent a procedure called a laser ablation surgery, where a doctor inserted a laser scope through the back of her head into her temporal lobe, searing the area that caused seizures. Now a freshman at Shawnee, she plays volleyball.

With 21 write-ins, Pawylzyn won the seat by just one vote, gaining him the prestigious position at 18 years old.
