Gianna Jones

Warren, Ohio

Gianna Jones, 17, of Warren, Ohio, a senior at Warren G. Harding High School, worked with the Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership to brighten abandoned properties in her community by hand-painting the boards that were placed over doors and windows, protecting the buildings from intruders and the elements with portraits of important women in history. Gianna solicited donations for supplies from the local community, sketched her designs on a tablet, then worked in her garage to paint the boards.
