At the kick-off for Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey’s 2017-2018 Team Rival Peer Leadership Conference, the second annual Haley Cremer “Do Unto Others” Award for Peer Leadership was awarded to Stephanie Fine, a senior at Sharon High School.
Stephanie was nominated as a junior by school Guidance Counselor Andrea d’Entremont with support from faculty members Anne Rounseville, Margie Mitlin, Laura Frye, Sandy Dennis, and Steve Banno, for her “compassionate commitment to helping others”, “the phrase that embodies the spirit of Haley Cremer” according to d’Entremont. Stephanie was also cited as a “real leader”, “a doer”, and an individual “fully committed” to everything she does. Stephanie was an intern in the 2016-2017 Pathways Program and was cited as “an incredible source of leadership”. Stephanie also volunteered for the Polar Plunge, raising money for the Special Olympics. She is a member of the Unified Track team, is an Eagle Buddies member and co-leader, and so much more. Additionally, Stephanie balances a very busy lifestyle with a strong commitment to her family.
Stephanie was joined by her parents, brother, and grandmother as she received the award from DA Morrissey and the Cremer family.
Ivie Cremer stated, “It gives us great joy and provides us comfort to see Stephanie pursuing the same goals of tolerance, respect, selflessness, and compassion to enhance the lives of others”.
