Anne Bergstrom

Illinois

Anne Bergstrom, Seneca High School, was recognized for her work as a missionary in Papua, New Guinea, for the New Tribes Mission. During her six-week trip, Anne, a certified nursing assistant, helped teach in the mission's school, cooked meals for more than a dozen people, and, when the only doctor broke his hand, assisted with medical procedures she had never attempted.
