Callie Carter

El Dorado , Kansas

Callie Carter, 18, of El Dorado, Kan., a senior at El Dorado High School, led a collection drive that provided diapers, clothes, formula and other baby items for thousands of families affected by Hurricane Harvey. Moved by the images she saw coming out of Texas – and knowing how many diapers her newborn nephew required every day – Callie solicited corporate and community support and conducted media interviews to spread awareness of her drive.
