State Honoree

Robbie Poore


Robbie Poore, active on the student council of Gauger Cobbs Middle School, Newark, was recognized for organizing a trash clean-up day in his community. Robbie also helped expose his friends to lessons in altruism, community service and the notion that one person can make a difference. He enlisted over 20 kids from his neighborhood -- all under the age of 15 -- to pick up trash for hours on a hot summer afternoon.
