QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A local teenager recently presented a $1,500 check to Great River Honor Flight.

The funds were primarily raised by Quincy Notre Dame student Sophia Marcolla, who was recently named Miss Quincy's Outstanding Teen 2017. Her endeavor started as collections at a series of athletic events, but it turned into various fundraising efforts at QND.

Shahna Magee noticed Marcolla's fundraising efforts and agreed to match up to $200 in donations.
