Guam - Simon Sanchez High School students that participated in the Leave Your Mark project were presented with a legislative resolution for their accomplishments. The Leave Your Mark project aims to create an improved environment for students at the Home of the Sharks. Project leader Derrick Evangelista told KUAM News, "Leave Your Mark is a class that gives seniors the opportunity to examine issues around their community and find solutions to fix them or help it out."

And Mariel Villaluz, another project leader, said, "The big mark that we've left is Project Inspire and we've actually encouraged underclassmen to take ownership of their school, so that once we leave the new generation can take care of their school."

The Leave Your Mark project is the first student organization of its kind at Simon Sanchez.
