The Rita and Jacob Salzman 2011
Outstanding Student Award

Emma SullivanEmma Sullivan, from Tampa, FL, is one of three winners of the Outstanding Student Award. Ms. Sullivan adopted two underserved elementary schools and started an organization called Caring About Tomorrow’s Students (CATS). She recruited 65 high school student volunteers to raise money to buy basic toiletry supplies for the student body and encouraged students to become tutors in a weekly tutoring program. The tutoring program teaches basic academic and reading skills for students who have never had a bedtime story read to them.
