Gabrielle Willis


Gabrielle Willis, West Anchorage High School, was recognized for her volunteer work on the Mukluk, a newspaper for residents of the Anchorage Pioneer's Home, an assisted-living/nursing facility. Working as editor, reporter, photographer and graphic designer, she volunteered over 500 hours in a single year to produce 12 issues. When the publication ran out of funds, she raised over $700 from local businesses and organizations to keep it going.
