The Westhampton Free Library has recognized its third young local hero, Morgan Deverna, a fourth-grader at Westhampton Beach Elementary School for her unwavering commitment to helping her peers and the community.

“The library is impressed with Morgan’s resolve to go out of her way to help those around her,” said Library Director Danielle Waskiewicz. “She is a true community hero.”

Morgan was nominated for the recognition by her teacher, Jennifer Wagner. “She’s always making others smile,” said Wagner. “She shares and helps her fellow students and is a wonderful choice for a hometown hero.”

She also participates in school activities related to community service, including the Waves Environmental Club, where she assists with recycling efforts in her school and brainstorms ways to help clean the planet.

Outside of school, Morgan’s helping nature is at work as a junior Girl Scout with Troop 521. As a Scout, she has served food at homeless shelters, collected toys for children in need and made cookies for children at the Ronald McDonald House.

She is also a dancer and actress, taking musical theater dance classes at the Dance Centre of the Hamptons and acting courses at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. She also plays basketball with the Hampton Youth Athletic League.
