#s 13 & 19.
# 19- truly inspiring!
#20 - Making an Impact - Michelle Stevens
#8..."The Importance of Public Service" - by Kyle Robisch gets my vote!
Although still a student, Kyle is already a public servant who does more than talk the talk. So many, many people have been fortunate to have Kyle impact their lives in a plethora of positive ways. One example: Using the "leftovers" from one of the largest public universities in the country, perfectly good food that was being tossed into a landfill daily, to feed countless men, women and children....public service personified! Good luck, Kyle!
I vote for #13 or #19
#7 has my vote, as well!
I've already voted, but I encourage you to take a look at #7 Sean Herron. He worked tirelessly for NASA -- for FREE -- for many long months with long hours and weekends. He's a wonderful example of what Public Service is all about. He cares about making a difference in how we serve the public in the best way possible. We need MORE like him in our next generation public servants.

Vote for #7 and spread the good word....
