Rosary High School senior Lauryn Streid, daughter of Robbyn and Gene Streid of Elburn, was presented with the Brattin Civic Youth Award at the annual Pearl Harbor Day Luncheon Dec. 7 in Aurora. This award is given to students who demonstrate the qualities of citizenship, leadership, and service through their activities in the school, church, or community. Lauryn founded the Real Swimmers Wear Pink program in 2012 to reach out and help those whose lives are affected by breast cancer. "Rather than volunteer somewhere for a day or two or participate in an event organized by another entity, she decided that she was going to be the change that she wanted to see in the world -- which is exactly what we educate our Rosary students to do," said guidance counselor Lisa Sustersic, who nominated Lauren for the award.
