Uriah Burroughs

Uriah Burroughs

Gulf Middle School - 7th Grade

Uriah did not want to see anyone left out on Valentine's Day, so he saved his money and purchased a rose for every 6th grade girl in the school, as well as the female teachers. This brought tears to the eyes of many recipients and showed a student who puts the feelings of others ahead of his own.

Zoey Pike

Christa McAuliffe Elementary School - 3rd Grade

Zoey wanted to help her community so she decided that she would work in a food pantry. Zoey was willing to give up Christmas Eve and Christmas morning to pack food for "Meals of Hope." She continues to be involved in her community.

Carlee Groenevel

Mariner Middle School 8th Grade

Carlee feels that the best way to share her love of sports is to give other students the opportunity to have access to the costly equipment needed to play sports. Through her charity, "Have a Ball," Carlee has received donations from residents, local businesses and teachers and students at Mariner Middle School. Her efforts have continued to grow and she now is receiving donations from the Miami Heat basketball team. To date, Carlee has raised well over one thousand dollars and touched the lives of numerous local children.

Mitchell Gleason

Oasis Middle School - 8th Grade

Mitchell found a credit card on the side of the road. He took it upon himself to do a Google search of the name on the card and took it to the address listed for the teacher.
