ANNAPOLIS, Md. (Nov. 15) - Senior women's soccer player Margaret Ewers spread some good will for the Naval Academy this afternoon, as she made appearances at two different schools to present awards and talk about her experiences at the Naval Academy.
Ewers, a native of Danville, Calif., started her afternoon by presenting the Student-of-the-Month Award to two students at Brooklyn Park Middle School in Baltimore, Md. Over 200 sixth graders were in attendance. The program focused on academics and conduct.
After leaving Brooklyn Park, Ewers moved on to Germantown Elementary School in Annapolis where she was the final speaker at the school's Career Day.
Ewers gave a wonderful presentation to over 400 students about the Navy, the Naval Academy and some of the skills you need to be a success in life. After her 20-minute speech, Ewers took questions for another 30 minutes to the delight of the youngsters in attendance.
Ewers' two speaking engagements were part of the Naval Academy Athletic Association's community service program.
Last week, senior Justin Mikolay of the men's cross country team and junior Danielle LaSalle of the women's soccer team spoke to more than 300 students at Fort Smallwood Elementary school in Pasadena, Md., about life at the Naval Academy.
