Katherine Eller

Oklahoma

Katherine Eller, Carver Middle School, Tulsa, was recognized for starting Lemon-Aid, a fund-raiser for the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. She has acquired supplies from donors, worked with local media to promote the program and gotten kids all through the area to set up Lemon-Aid stands. Last year, there were more than 200.
Lemon-Aid raised over $7,000 in 1994, and $20,000 in 1995, enabling the Center to purchase toys, playground equipment, cribs and various emergency supplies.
