Teens awarded as angels

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Four Forest Hills Central students were recently honored for their hope, generosity, and kindness. Mariah Otolski, Allie Wittenbach, Sydney Vinton, and Bella Fiorenzo were awarded the Angel of Excellence Award by Carol Van Andel.

In eighth grade, the girls started raising money for the Van Andel Institute by holding purple games across the area. They recently presented a check to VAI for $100,000.

The girls say they hope they can bring the purple games message to college when they head to school next year and hope the message continues across West Michigan.
