Megan Riddle

Washington

Megan Riddle, 14, of Vista Middle school in Ferndale, Washington, has taken her love of animals and applied it to a volunteer position with the local Humane Society. Megan's job is an important one - she's responsible for giving the animals the socialization skills they need to be adopted by a loving family. She also helps with the production of a weekly TV show that encourages viewers to adopt the many animals at the Humane Society. Not only has Megan become involved, but she has recruited her entire family to volunteer, too. "I realized that only through volunteering can a program like the Humane Society succeed," said Megan.
