Allison Dyer

Swansea, Illinois

Allison Dyer, 18, of Swansea, Ill., a senior at Belleville Township High School East, organized an annual banquet that has raised more than $27,000 over the past three years for three local charities that serve people in need. To ensure that her “Blessing Belleville” initiative continues after she graduates, Allison taught two freshman girls how to plan and manage similar events.
