State Honoree

Mark Gibbs


Mark Gibbs, Mountain Gap Middle School, Huntsville, was recognized for starting a new community holiday tradition by organizing a Christmas program for local underprivileged children. To brighten their holiday, Mark worked with his local Optimist Club to offer over 100 underprivileged children a chance to have their photo taken with Santa Claus free of charge. Mark got local stores to donate film, camera and advertising costs.
