Each week during the 2014-15 year beginning in late October, the Fox Valley Association will feature two student-athletes (one male and one female) from one of its 10 schools for a "Student-Athlete Spotlight" Q & A segment. The segments will be posted every Tuesday and Thursday and individuals are selected by the school.

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? On my club team Fox Valley Wave we spent a day with kids around ages 5-10 years old that were less fortunate. We spent that full day playing numerous games and activities. I know the kids had an amazing day since they asked us to return the very next day but the feeling I got after is indescribable.
