Jason Hall

North Carolina

Jason Hall, Salisbury High School, built a 24-foot pedestrian bridge for a newly developed park area called the "Greenway." Hoping to increase public interest in the area with the construction of the bridge, Hall persuaded local businesses to donate needed materials and recruited more than 50 members of his Boy Scout troop to dedicate 800 hours to the project. Increased funding from the community has since provided the Greenway with playing fields.

"The community gives back indefinitely to those who give of themselves."
