Edwin Seagraves

Kingston Springs, Tennessee

Edwin Seagraves, 19, of Kingston Springs, Tenn., a senior at Harpeth High School, helped raise $1,600 to finance a housing deposit for a friend with special needs whose family was facing eviction. An active member of his school’s Best Buddies and Special Olympics programs, Edwin was determined to help his “buddy” stay in a familiar school district, and raised enough money through social media campaigning in less than a week.
