Distinguished Finalist

Vivian Hurn

Southside, Tennessee

Vivian Hurn, 17, of Southside, Tennessee, a senior at Montgomery Central High School, organized a blood drive at her high school that collected nearly 80 units of blood from 105 donors; her efforts included coordinating with the Red Cross, recruiting volunteers, creating a volunteer schedule, making posters and registering donors. Vivian was inspired to focus on this initiative by her mother, who has always encouraged her to donate blood because of their universal blood types.
