Middle-schooler Sofia Soto has been volunteering at the Dodge City, Kan., Corps for the past three years. She’s had an indelible impact as a role model on her peers and younger children at her corps, school and community, reported Captain Chrissie Coreano, then corps officer.

Sofia assists with moonbeams, sunbeams and explorers and volunteers for the corps’ mobile kids’ clubs and vacation Bible schools each summer. She’s also the youth representative on the corps council. Enrolled in a gifted academic program, Sofia is involved in school band, jazz ensemble, basketball and dance—and volunteers six or more hours each week at the corps.

“Sofia has a true servant’s heart for God and befriends the friendless using her bi-lingual skills to help new immigrant children feel safe and accepted,” Captain Chrissie concluded.
