Cathryn Campbell
Cathryn Campbell
Gender: Female
Focus: Society Builder
Reason: Soldier in the Save Earth Wars
Story:

Cathryn Campbell thinks. She observes, she notices, and she thinks. She looks for and sees and feels the ripple effects of her actions and the actions of others. Here’s part of a story from her experience volunteering in rural Africa:

John Christensen
John Christensen
Gender: Male
Focus: Challenged
Reason: What mean this word, "can't"?
Story:

John Christensen is officially 1 in 25,000, but unofficially he’s more of a “1 in a million” type of guy. He has a genetic tendency (1 in 25,000) to grow tumors in his brain and body, but he uses his medical challenges to make him stronger (1 in a million) and to help children with the same affliction learn to cope.

Carl Honeysett
Carl Honeysett
Gender: Male
Focus: Society Builder
Reason: Musketeer ("One for all . . ." )
Story:

At age 17 Carl Honeysett had dropped out high school and a few months later was living on the streets. He says, “Things from there got worse. I got involved with teenage gangs, fights and drugs. I was breaking into houses and cars to pay for drugs and food. I went to court several times and saw friends go in and out of jail.” It took a few years, but he turned his life around, way around. By age 24 he was volunteering as an English teacher in Cambodia, which he describes as “the best decision I have ever made in my life.”

Jessica Morey

Gender: Female
Focus: Society Builder
Reason: Illuminator
Story:

Jessica Morey is not your average young American woman: after high school and before college, she bought herself an airplane ticket to Burma (Myanmar) to spend three months in a Buddhist monastery where meditation was maximized and speaking was minimized. (I know Jessica, and although she is not one of those people that talk always and endlessly, she is so full of life I can’t imagine her being nearly silent for so long!)

The Kranstons
The Kranston Family
Gender: Couple or Team
Focus: Society Builder
Reason: What mean this word, "can't"?
Story:

H. and K. Kranston have not sought any public limelight, but their friends consider them slightly larger than life. They work well together (see below) and have built what certainly appears to be a young family happier than many, many others. Surely some of the people who have met them and gotten to know them have said to themselves, “Look what H. and K. have done: maybe I could do . . .”
