Amber Michaels is the daughter of Elise and Robert Michaels. For her project, Amber organized girls to move the existing children’s garden at Genesee Valley Farm Discovery Center and a new, thriving garden was planted. Her project also included coordinating rock painting and garden-themed story time programs for young visitors.

Amber is a graduate of Spencerport High School and she has been accepted into MCC’s 2+2 program with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She’s studying Engineering Sciences at MCC and plans to study Electrical Engineering at RPI.

Camaria Long is the daughter of Aaronda Clarkson and Christopher Long. Her gold award project was completed at Church of the Epiphany in Gates where she organized a church service run by the youth of the parish which had parishioners from two years old to 80 dancing in the pews. It was so well received that many parishioners requested that it become a regular part of the church calendar at least twice a year.

Camaria is a recent graduate of Aquinas Institute. She signed a letter of intent to run Division I women’s track at the University at Buffalo where she will pursue a degree in nursing in the fall.
