Daniel Aguirre


Daniel Aguirre, 15, of Northview Middle School in Ankeny, Iowa, volunteers 10 hours each week to assist his school janitorial staff in cleaning the school. His project began as a service to the art teachers in the school when Daniel would clean the two art rooms. "I like a clean area, and in a school with 800 students, this is not easy," said Daniel. "I did this volunteer project because I wanted to help." This eventually led to his interest in assisting the janitors, who now have more time to attend to important school matters thanks to Daniel's help.
