Jocelyn Cullen

Oceanport , New Jersey

Jocelyn Cullen, 17, of Oceanport, N.J., a junior at Shore Regional High School, launched an initiative that, over the past four years, has taught more than 100 kids how to swim and stay safe in pools or the ocean. Jocelyn recruited fellow members of her club swim team to help her administer swimming lessons and water safety clinics, raised funds to make pool repairs and sponsor a swim club member, and worked with a Boys & Girls Club to integrate her swim instruction into its after-school program.
