Rachel West

Arkansas

Rachel West, West Side Junior High School, Greers Ferry, served as 4-H project coordinator in bringing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall to her area. Planning for the project began in the fall of 1994, when she put her club on the waiting list of sponsors. To promote the Wall's arrival, West arranged for public service announcements on television stations throughout the state. She collected over $7,000 in donations to make the event happen.

"I would like to tell other young people to get involved to make the world a better place."
