State Honoree

Laura Beck

Texas

Laura Beck, Lamesa High School, founded a program called "Kaps for Kids with Cancer," which decorates and distributes caps to cancer patients who have lost hair from treatments. She received donations to buy supplies for the project and recruited more than 175 people to help make the caps. Her program has provided hats for over 400 children with cancer within a 200- mile radius of Lamesa.

"I have been rewarded by meeting my goal and seeing the smiles on children's faces when they slip a cap on their heads."
