State Honoree

Steven Rogers

North Carolina

Steven Rogers, Rugby Middle School, Hendersonville, helped build a pedestrian path for the Historic Johnson Farm, which holds events sponsored by the local community. The farm's driveway was too narrow for cars and pedestrians to use at the same time, so Rogers spent 15 hours planning the project, and enlisted the help of more than 30 people in the construction of the walkway. The path was finished in time for the farm's largest festival of the year.

"Knowing that the path I built will be used for years to come is very fulfilling and rewarding."
