Freshman Student Honored for her Volunteerism

On November 4, the Daily Breeze newspaper presented its first Women of Distinction Awards. After receiving more than 160 nominations, the Daily Breeze and a panel of community leaders narrowed the field to 33 finalists in 11 categories. Marymount College freshman, Erica Fine, was selected as a finalist in the category of Young Woman of the Year.

Erica has spent more than 1,200 hours doing volunteer work while enrolled at Palos Verdes High School. Now a student at Marymount, she is involved in Marymount Opportunities for Volunteer Experience and is serving at the Boys & Girls Club of the Los Angeles Harbor helping after-school students with homework, play activities and sports. “I like to spend my time wisely, rather than doing something like watching TV. That doesn’t really help anyone. I mean it’s fine, but I like to see what my time benefits and what I can do with that time,” says Fine.
