Andrew Kerble

Stow, Massachusetts

Andrew Kerble, 18, of Stow, Mass., a senior at Nashoba Regional High School, led a class of first graders in a two-week project to collect books from their personal libraries, then donate them to children living in a homeless shelter. After guiding discussions about the importance of books and how some kids might not have access to them, Andrew helped the children write letters to their parents explaining what they wanted to do; students ended up donating 150 books, which Andrew delivered to the shelter Abby’s House.
