standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend

WHEREAS, This honor recognizes high school students and educators from
Guilderland, Voorheesville, Berne-Knox-Westerlo, Bethlehem, and Ravena-

as overall winners for their dedication to service in their schools,

service project SOUL Surfers Program at a California YMCA Camp; and
WHEREAS, With her sense of civic duty and her commitment to others,
Rachael Gray represents the best development of the potential which is
inherent in our most precious resource, our youth; and
WHEREAS, It is the practice of this Legislative Body that when indi-
viduals of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Rachael Gray upon the occasion of being honored at the Capital
