Constance Metropulos was an 18-year-old student at
St. Andrew’s School when she was selected as our first Volunteen “Spotlight” for the 2003-2004 school year.

Constance founded the “Strokes for Success” after-school swim program for young children. Here in South Florida, there are pools everywhere, and young children must be taught to swim. After reading and hearing about elementary school age drowning victims, Constance felt that she could make a difference in her community, and save lives at the same time.

“Strokes for Success” consists of 2 twelve week sessions. The students participate for 1 hour a week. They learn to love the water, how to be safe and careful around a pool, and how to swim! Constance says: ”Founding, implementing, and instructing this program has made me forever grateful for the blessings that have been given me.” She believes that helping younger children to succeed in any aspect of their lives can be beneficial. She encourages other teens to become involved. Donations of bathing suits, and any offers of sponsorship would be greatly appreciated.

Constance is also involved in the Greek Orthodox Youth of America, where she finds many new ways to serve her neighborhood and her community. She serves on the Community Service Board at her high school, and is the President of the Senior class. She is to be commended for her contribution to her school, her neighborhood, and her community. “ Congratulations Constance, you’ve earned the spotlight!”
