On Spring Rebuilding Day 2013, students from O'Dea High School (and some parents and teachers) worked hard painting Theresa's house. They also completed yard work and secured her front deck for safety. The project leaders selected, Gabriel Richter Hardaker, as the recipient of the Energizer Award.

"The Energizer Award goes to Gabriel Richter Hardaker. I chose Gabriel for the award because he was the first to arrive at O'Dea and the last to leave. He took his painting tasks seriously and entertained his teachers and peers with his interesting conversations. His energy never waivered throughout the project."
