Mary Olivette was surprised to receive the 22nd Anniversary ‘Rising Star’ Award from Ms. Carolyn Francis, President, Prince of Peace Church Ladies of the Blessed Mother Sodality. President Francis stated, "Mary Olivette Bookman, on October 13, 2013, was presented the ‘Rising Star’ Award which is given to young persons who are active in the Church and in the Youth activities of their Church. Mary Olivette is the youngest recipient of this award. She was given this award because she stands out in all areas of youth Church activities.

"The Blessed Mother Sodality wants her to carry on in displaying her talents with her focus on her virtues of caring and sharing with God as her Spearhead. Her humbleness is what shines in all of her activities because she thinks of others, as well as herself. The Sodality was very proud to present Mary Olivette Bookman with this award."
