Hello! My name is Sallie Sams and I am a Senior at Polson High School in Polson, Montana. Just a little bit about me… I’m very active with music and in sports. I’m a member of the elite Concert Choir and have performed in many concerts and festivals. I am a three sport athlete competing in volleyball, softball, and cheerleading. I was a part of the 2010 Softball State Championship Team contributing as a second baseman. I was also a part of the 2010 Volleyball Divisional Championship Team as a Captain and middle hitter ranking number one in our conference for blocks and number two for hitting. I have been awarded first team All-Conference and first team All-State as a Senior for volleyball and second team All-Conference as a Sophomore for softball. As you can see, my passion is music and sports. I’m also hard working, dedicated to my beliefs, and very friendly.

I have recently been accepted into the Irish Life Experience-an unforgettable summer journey to Ireland for high school students-June 27-July 21, 2011. Emphasizing culture, education, travel, and fun, the Irish Life Experience strives to insure each student’s experience is unique and unforgettable. Students are introduced to Ireland’s welcoming and friendly people, magical and beautiful landscape, and rich heritage and tradition, all of which will be celebrated through structured classes and tours.

I’m looking forward to learning about the Irish culture and being able to witness the beauty of the Emerald Isle first-hand. I’m extremely excited to learn and participate in traditional Irish sports, such as Gaelic football and hurling and even master an Irish jig or two.

This summer will be a life changing opportunity for me and I feel blessed to have been given this opportunity. It will open many doors for my future.

However, I need YOUR HELP! I will not be able to afford the program without the financial assistance of family and friends. With your donation, it will help make my dream come true. I appreciate your support and truly thank you for your generosity. Go raibh maith agat-Thank you!
