University Meadows enjoys close proximity to a number of DISD, parochial and private schools. The University Meadows Neighborhood Association thought it would be fun to spotlight some of the terrific kids in our neighborhood.
Lauren Campagna, a senior at Bishop Lynch High School and daughter of Kammie and John (UMNA board Treasurer), is one of two Campagna kids. Her brother, Joe, is a sophomore at Jesuit.
As part of her the Girl Scout Gold Award (the highest achievement in Girl Scouting) project, Lauren created Blankets that Benefit to give back to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children and provide children comfort and warmth during their hospital stay. With volunteers and support from her community, Lauren managed the creation and donation of more than 130 blankets and is planning quarterly deliveries. In her own words: “Scottish Rite hospital holds a very special place in my heart because I became a patient at the age of two. I enjoy giving back to the hospital and Blankets that Benefit is a sustainable project that will continue to give blankets to the hospital in the future.” To support Lauren’s Blankets that Benefit, contact her mom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lauren plays on the Bishop Lynch Varsity Golf Team. She finished 6th in the 2016 Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools -TAPPS- State Championship, and was accepted to play college golf next year at The University of Texas at Dallas. She has a 3.74 GPA, and is active in several school organizations and community service activities. Lauren is an excellent student, active in several school and community organizations, and well-known on the babysitting circuit…. Way to go Lauren –
