Emmalee was a huge help to her neighbors and community before and after hurricane Irma. Before the hurricane, Emmalee helped drill plywood onto her elderly neighbors' homes. After the hurricane, she helped neighbors in her community by cutting trees, raking leaves and overall clean up. She doesn't let her hearing loss stop her from standing up for others. If she sees a classmate not speaking up for themselves, then she will do it for them.

Alexander Caruso

Alex saw a peer laying in the hallway after school. The student said he felt sick and couldn't get up. Alex reassured the student and found help to get the student medical treatment, even though this was far outside his comfort zone. He overcame his own anxiety of the situation to help a peer.
