Haven Scogin

New Mexico

Haven Scogin, Menual School, Albuquerque, co-created an outreach program for at-risk children. Through "Follow in our Footsteps," the school's 52-member student council plans activities involving nearby children in need of positive role models. The student council raised $5,000 for projects such as a shoe drive for the needy and a haunted house Halloween party for 100 at-risk children. Scogin spent 105 hours on this project during the 1995 school year.

"Volunteering is a highly productive way to spend time that provides a high far exceeding that of any drug."
