Donan Eckles

Mississippi

Donan Eckles, Hernando High School, was recognized for forming Operation Imagination, to encourage younger children to read. Last year, Donan collected 200 used books from her peers and donated them to elementary school libraries to give to children who do not own their own books. She also goes to the schools to read stories to the children and to encourage them to read. This year, Donan will also collect and distribute games.
