Krissy Truesdale -- Phillips Exeter Academy
Krissy is starting a non-profit organization called Solar for our Superheroes - a company that will be giving away and installing solar panels for veterans, police, firefighters and teachers who meet certain criteria. She has taken this idea from inception in March of this year to the point where she is applying for 501C3 status with the IRS, is soliciting donations, doing fund raisers, making public speeches, building her own website, talking with energy companies and establishing the framework within which all work can be ordered, qualified, installed and paid for.
Her intention is to have the organization up and operational before she graduates from high school. You can go to her Facebook page: www.facebook/solar4heroes
You will hear a remarkably talented, generous, intelligent and focused high school student who is destined to make a huge difference in the world. She is now in the Island School in the Bahamas and the teacher, Chris Maxey, has decided that the students will work on Krissy's Non-Profit company as part of the school. I cannot imagine a more deserving candidate for your award.
