State Honoree

Andrew Ingold

Kansas

Andrew Ingold, 13, of Andover Middle School in Andover, Kansas, conducted a penny drive that yielded nearly $1,800 to support the clean-up of an historic home that was vandalized by students from his school. "I felt really bad that some of my classmates would do this, and I wanted to help in some way," said Andy. Andy secured his principal's support, decorated drop-off containers, and placed the containers throughout the school and in area businesses. He also secured a matching donation from the Andover State Bank, which boosted the total far above the few hundred dollars Andy hoped to collect.
