Christine Eppler (Class of '17) received recognition from U.S. Congressman Ryan Costello for her countless hours of devotion in helping others within the community. Christine received a U.S. Flag (5 feet x 9 feet) that was flown above the U.S. Capital Building located in Washington D.C. in March. The flag was encased in a display case folded by 2 U.S. Air-Force Officers and later presented at the Antietam Sports Boosters Banquet on June 4th at the Antietam Recreation Center. The encased flag came with a certificate of authenticity and a message from U.S. Congressman Ryan Costello representing our 6th District of Pennsylvania.
Christine has dedicated her time to academics, athletics, and community service in which she has accumulated over 350 hours. She has devoted her time in teaching and training elementary school girls how to play volleyball and basketball within the Antietam School District. She has also helped in supporting the Berks Women in Crisis Center located in Reading and participated in feeding the needy from the Reading Salvation Army located on 5th & Spruce Street.
She will be attending a 4-year college in North Carolina majoring in Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management with a minor in Marketing and is committed in playing Women's College Basketball at Johnson & Wales University.
