Sebastian Kuhr

Hermosa Beach, California

Sebastian Kuhr, 17, of Hermosa Beach, Calif., a senior at Loyola High School, launched the skateboard fundraiser "SK8 for the Schools" when he was 5 years old, an initiative that has since generated more than $50,000 to save music, physical education and library programs at Hermosa Beach schools and raised awareness about concerns around public school funding. Sebastian also serves with Leadership Hermosa, collaborating with city council and others to improve the community.
