At BCC Recchiuti has worked in the Buckeye Pride Shop, served as a Buckeye Ambassador, is a member of Business Professionals of America and participates in Drug Free Clubs of America. She was nominated by her instructor, Mrs. Heather Irwin.

“She is positive and finds strength in all obstacles and encourages her classmates and family to see the best in every situation. She is very hardworking,” Irwin said.

Recchiuti plans to attend college to further her education in the business and marketing fields. She is the daughter of Shelley and John Recchiuti.

After high school Quillin plans to obtain a degree in mechanical engineering. He is the son of Steve and Sonya Quillin.
