Distinguished Finalist

Carolyn Bedell

Westlake, Ohio

Carolyn Bedell, 18, of Westlake, Ohio, a senior at Westlake High School, organized two fun community events and built a website in support of the Lilly Weston committee, a group dedicated to the preservation of a local historic farmhouse with hopes of one day turning it into a museum. Carolyn joined the committee and planned her initiatives after hearing that the group needed more local support; since then, they’ve raised $5,000 and doubled their membership.
