2016 Miss Missouri Preteen, Abbie Mueller, donated 4 cases of school supplies to La Salle Middle School in downtown St. Louis on August 15th. La Salle tries to serve students who may not have access to education that pushes them to succeed, go to great high schools, and eventually college. Their motto is “I Am Somebody” and they make the students feel positive about themselves. Abbie toured the school’s brand new building and campus, which opens tomorrow, and spoke with the Head of School, Melissa Brickey, the principal, Phil Pusateri, and Director of Advancement, Michelle Ryan, about her NAM experience and her mentoring program Self-ValYOU.
