Westbrook, Minnesota

Katherine Jorgenson, 17, of Westbrook, Minnesota, a senior at Westbrook Walnut Grove High School, created and helps run “Keeping Up the Kourage Foundation,” which helps families cover medical expenses and offers academic scholarships to local students; she has helped organize fundraising events including concerts, pie and ice cream nights and calendar raffles. Katherine was inspired to start this organization by the support she received from her community after a traumatic ATV accident.
