Shepherds Senior, Angel Chavez, is a star on and off the track. A three-season varsity runner and outstanding student, Angel is actively involved in community service at Notre Dame High School. Says mentor, Rich Coyle, “He is an intelligent and mature young man with the heart of a lion.” It’s a heart full of compassion too that extends to some of the world’s poorest inhabitants. A student leader, Angel is president of CSMC (Christian Service Student Club) and treasurer of Interact – a club that promotes community service in collaboration with the Rotary Club. Angel played a significant role in this year’s “Harvest Pack” a volunteer effort to provide hunger relief in Haiti and in the greater New Haven area as well. The CSMC and Interact joined the school’s Minority Student Club, Halsey Associates and the Rotary Clubs of West Haven, New Haven and Orange, for this year’s largest “Harvest Pack” to date – packaging a whopping 40,000 meals to feed the hungry.
