Former "America's Next Top Model" contestant Leah Darrow gives her personal testimony to a crowd of sixth through eighth graders at the diocesan Junior High Festival, held April 26 at GFW Middle School in Fairfax. Darrow used her conversion story to challenge the students to live holy, Christ-centered lives that make frequent use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The day also included a concert from Catholic musician Trevor Thomson and Mass with Bishop John M. LeVoir.
