Kirsty Hickey

Alaska

Kirsty Hickey, Central Middle School of Science, Anchorage, volunteers as a counselor at her local youth center and at a retirement home, and has helped coordinate more than ten community projects, including the clean-up of a neighborhood park and a fundraiser which collected nearly $1,500 for a homeless shelter. Because of her volunteer service, she was the only middle school student in Alaska named to the School Business Partnership Advisory Board.

"Volunteering has provided me with skills which are valuable for the future."
