Pearl Daskam

Ubly, Michigan

Pearl Daskam, 16, of Ubly, Mich., a member of Huron County 4-H and a homeschooled junior, co-founded “Meating the Need for Our Village” to provide people in need with high-quality protein, to supplement the packaged food they’d typically get from the food pantry. Pearl’s efforts have ranged from meeting with local leaders to distributing food; since 2014, the organization has provided the community with more than $50,000 worth of fresh meat, milk and eggs.
