Hailey Enamorado

Denham Springs, Louisiana

Hailey Enamorado, 15, of Denham Springs, La., a sophomore at Denham Springs High School, created "Hailey's Heroes," an initiative that has raised funds and provided volunteer support for veterans and active-duty military members, in addition to supporting causes including pediatric cancer awareness and remediation after flooding in her hometown. Inspired by the story of a relative who went missing in action in World War II, Hailey made it her mission to help her peers discover what it means to be a hero.
