Distinguished Finalist

Slater Heglin

Ulysses, Kansas

Slater Heglin, 18, of Ulysses, Kan., a senior at Ulysses High School, formed a project management team of fellow seniors at his school to raise funds to provide turkeys for local families who couldn’t afford a traditional Thanksgiving meal. In their “Tokens for Turkeys” project, the group invited students to contribute coins to select which pair of teachers at Ulysses High would swap jobs for a day.
