Anna received her Young Womanhood Recognition this year after working very hard all throughout her Young Women years. She worked every year on various projects (learning to play tennis as a Freshman and working her way up until she was able to play a Varsity tennis game this year, which she won and thus qualified because of her 4.0 GPA as Academic All-State; photography; running; cooking; sewing; playing the piano; camping; and learning leadership responsibilities such as Student Body Officer as Secretary this year; etc.) as she gained her goal to earn this recognition award. Through it all, she read her scriptures and did the various activities including writing them all in her journal as she increased her testimony in our Savior. She loves her family and her favorite activity is to be at home and read a good book. She wanted to earn this before she graduated and as promised her mom earned her Bee award along with her as seen in this picture.
