State Honoree

David Lugo

Puerto Rico

David Lugo, Carvin School, Carolina, was recognized for leading a campaign to donate books and games to adolescents in Puerto Rico's penitentiaries. Working to overcome community apathy toward youthful offenders, David spoke at churches, collected items from neighbors and, with a few classmates, delivered the donations personally to the penitentiaries, where the youthful offenders were both grateful and surprised that their peers cared.
