She far exceeded the 75 required hours of community service, racking up 706 hours and earning the distinction of most SSL hours accumulated by a Washington County Public Schools senior this year. "It really wasn't work, because I loved it so much," said Christy, 17. She was honored by the Washington County Public Schools at the Service Learning Senior Honor Night on April 28, along with 89 other seniors who had more than 150 SSL hours.
