State Honoree

Stephanie Adas

Michigan

Stephanie Adas, Orchard Lake Middle School, West Bloomfield, was recognized for organizing the "Let Someone Walk in Your Shoes" school shoe drive. After she discovered that her feet were growing faster than her shoes were wearing out, she rallied her classmates to donate their "gently-used" shoes. In two weeks, they delivered more than a hundred pair to a local service organization. Stephanie plans to make the shoe drive an annual event.
