State Honoree

Kody Jorgenson


Kody Jorgenson, Poston Junior High School, Mesa, established a memorial for the children who died in the Oklahoma City bombing. He made it his Eagle Scout Project to plant the "Children's Tree" at the Arizona State Capitol. He involved state officials in the planning process and spent more than 125 hours collecting donations and organizing the project. The tree was dedicated by the State of Arizona on October 2, 1996.
