Abigail Rose

Moyock, North Carolina

Abigail Rose, 17, of Moyock, North Carolina, a senior at Currituck County High School, organized six “comfort closets” at local elementary schools, which offer free hygiene products to students; her efforts include meeting with school administrators, soliciting donations from local organizations, shopping for products and keeping each closet stocked. Abigail was motivated to start this program as a way to help students feel more confident at school.
