Delilah Johnson of Little Compton is passionate about many things. Johnson is a member of the Bishop Stang swim team and serves as the Secretary of the Jr. National Honor Society. In addition, Johnson volunteers two to three times a week after school at My Brother’s Keeper. To date, she has completed close to five hundred hours of service. Each time she goes to volunteer, she tries to bring along another student to introduce them to the organization.

“Delilah is the most reliable student volunteer and has taken on a large leadership role at a young age,” states Dias, who nominated her “Delilah currently serves as the Student Service Coordinator for My Brother’s Keeper at Bishop Stang and sets a wonderful example for her classmates with her enthusiasm for their work and mission. With a staff of only three people, My Brother’s Keeper relies on local high school students like Delilah to carry out their mission of bringing love and hope to those they serve. Delilah is incredibly organized and she has found creative ways to keep track of student volunteers.”

I am a student coordinator for My Brother’s Keeper at my school, and I look at my role as a way to promote love and kindness. I never want to force students to volunteer, I always want to encourage students to get involved with My Brother’s Keeper for the sake of experiencing the mission and living out their faith. In addition, I have organized a linen collection (sheets, blankets, etc.) for My Brother’s Keeper at my school. I am glad that I can promote the mission of this organization to my school community in hope that they can love it as much as I do.”
