Eliza Marcus is a 12th grader at Maret School. There are not enough hours in the day for Eliza to participate in all the activities she enjoys from sports to music to the arts. Eliza is a ferocious competitor in soccer and lacrosse (among others), but an even more enthusiastic companion to her friends across her different communities. Eliza was excited to take a position on the Junior Board of Kids Helping Kids in 2014 and have the opportunity to work with several friends to reinvigorate “Lemonaide Day” in Alexandria. Eliza is looking forward to another successful Lemonaide Day. Thanks her family and friends for their encouragement and support.
This year, Eliza is very excited to continue expanding Kids Helping Kids mostly by working with the nonprofits that KHK will support this year. She cannot wait to spend more time with her friends and helping out the community at the same time. That’s the perfect duo! Eliza is excited to drive around Alexandria on Lemonaide Day and see “lemonaide” stands in every neighborhood.
