Distinguished Finalist

Faith Baxter

Dripping Springs, Texas

Faith Baxter, 18, of Hays, Texas, a member of Hays County 4-H and a senior at Dripping Springs High School, co-founded “Center of the Plate,” which donated more than 6,400 pounds of meat to families dealing with food insecurity; her efforts include soliciting food donations from 4-H club members and local grocery stores, securing freezers and distributing meat to families. Faith and her sister started this initiative after learning that fresh meat is rarely available at their local food pantries.
