BC Senior to Receive Youth Humanitarian Award

‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me. ‘ Matthew 25:40

In his letter to nominate Alexis Ditosti for the Matthew 25 Youth Humanitarian Award, Mr. Nagy describes Alexis as selfless and shares the many ways in which she ‘demonstrates a Christian attitude of compassion and heart.’

Beyond her participation in many clubs and activities at BC, including Student Ambassadors, Student Evangelizers, Liturgical Choir, Nation Honor Society, soccer and cheer, Alexis serves her parish, Our Lady of the Alleghenies in Lilly, and teaches dance at Charlene’s School of Dance. She regularly champions charitable projects to help others, such as food pantry collections, the Angel Tree, and fundraisers for cancer research and the Martha & Mary House Emergency Homeless Shelter. Alexis has also volunteered for the soup kitchen at Franklin United Methodist in Johnstown.

Mr. Nagy also shared that her dealings with others, especially with younger students in the Ambassadors program, Alexis is patient, kind and enthusiastic. She is also a proactive student of the Catholic faith, asking thought-provoking questions and participating whole-heartedly in faith activities.

For all these reasons, Alexis was chosen by the Catholic Charities board of directors to receive this meaningful award at the upcoming dinner on June 1 at the Blair County Convention Center. Friends are invited to attend to congratulate her on this honor. Tickets are available through the Catholic Charities office by calling (814) 944-9388.

Following graduation, Alexis will enter the Pharmacy program at Pitt-Johnstown. Congratulations on this outstanding award and all your achievements.
