Sedona Thomas

Logandale, Nevada

Sedona Thomas, 18, of Logandale, Nev., a senior at Moapa Valley High School, created a local program that distributes kits with decals and medical information sheets for people to keep in their homes and cars, providing potentially life-saving information to first responders in a rural community 65 miles from the nearest trauma center. Sedona secured funding for kit materials from her local fire district, and persuaded three fire stations and a community center to serve as “Yellow Dot kit” distribution centers.
