Brenna Heavin

Rolla, Missouri

Brenna Heavin, 16, of Rolla, Mo., a junior at Rolla High School, has worked with her family since 2011 on “Cupcakes for Cancer,” an annual initiative that has raised more than $15,000 through cupcake sales for The Joy of Caring Cancer Fund to assist people with cancer in paying everyday expenses. Brenna and her family organize cupcake sales online and then prepare and distribute them; they’ve distributed more and more cupcakes each year, and baked more than 3,500 of them this past year.
