State Honoree

Emily Prysby

Michigan

Emily Prysby, Berkshire Middle School, Beverly Hills, started a "SOUPER" campaign to feed the hungry. After making posters to advertise the event and daily announcements over the school intercom, she collected hundreds of pounds of soup and other food for distribution in the low­ income Cass Corridor section of Detroit. Prysby is planning a sock drive for the homeless this year.
