Jenny Hughes


Jenny Hughes, Finn Hill Junior High School, Kirkland, was recognized for creating unique birthday cards for seniors at the Des Moines Senior Center, where a friend of her families worked. After hearing that some of the seniors were receiving used birthday cards with old names whited-out, Jenny decided to make personalized cards on her computer for each of the seniors herself. Each month, Jenny makes approximately 75 customized birthday cards.
