Keila Davis

Montana

Keila Davis, C.R. Anderson Middle School, Helena, provides care for a 2-year-old boy with AIDS. She babysits every other weekend to help the child's mother, who is also an AIDS patient, get some much-needed rest. Davis' mother helps her administer the child's daily medicine and other special requirements for his illness. Davis has been volunteering her time for the child she calls her "little brother," since March of 1996.

"My goal is to educate other teenagers and adults about AIDS so they will not be afraid of people with the disease."
