At the 2018 St. Francis Xavier Society Celebration Dinner, an event to honor donors and special supporters of the GC community, Senior Alexia Ayuk provided the room full of attendees with a powerful speech. Alexia and some of her fellow classmates started their own charity called "A Book For My Birthday" and have since successfully collected and donated over 14,000 books to children who do not have the resources to get books of their own. Alexia credited the generosity of the donors and honored guests for giving her, and students alike at GC, the opportunity to pursue their education at Good Counsel. "When every single one of you donates something to this school, you are not just donating a dollar value, you are empowering a dream."
