Emily Morgan

Bowling Green, Kentucky

Emily Morgan, 18, of Bowling Green, Kentucky, a senior at Greenwood High School, founded and runs “Every 98 Seconds,” a nonprofit organization that collects and donates art supplies for children in her community who have experienced trauma; she spreads awareness of the importance of art therapy and has raised nearly $3,000 and more than 200 art supplies. Emily was motivated to start the organization by the proven benefits of art therapy for kids, and to help lift the stigma around discussing child abuse.
