Hailey Brooke Lober of Roswell, the daughter of Michael and Heather Lober and sister of Hannah Lober, was called to the Torah as a bat mitzvah Saturday, Aug. 12, at Temple Beth Tikvah.
She is the granddaughter of Skippy Lober of Merritt Island, Fla., and the late Henry Lober and David and Marilyn Waugh of Jacksonville, Fla.
Hailey is in the eighth grade at Mill Springs Academy, where she has received three President’s Educational Gold Awards for Outstanding Academic Excellence. She plays fast-pitch softball for the city of Roswell, is on the swim team at Mill Springs and is an equestrienne at Alpha Equestrian. She also enjoys biking, hiking, surfing, skateboarding and kayaking.
Hailey is an active member of the National Charity League, a mother/daughter philanthropic organization. She also is involved in a leadership program at school. Through both programs, Hailey volunteers at such charitable organizations as Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, Atlanta Humane Society, the Drake House, DreamWeavers of Georgia, Foster Care Support Foundation, Furkids, the Fulton County Library, Heaven’s Gait Therapeutic Riding and the North Metro Miracle League. Her favorite volunteer opportunity is tutoring children after school at STAR House, where she makes a personal connection with every child she tutors, resulting in lasting relationships.
Hailey is also a dedicated environmentalist. As part of her mitzvah projects, she joined the Sierra Club to support research into honeybee colony collapse disorder. She certified her family’s yard as a wildlife habitat through the World Wildlife Fund and continues to work toward ecological sustainability.
