Leonard Galmon

High school senior Leonard Galmon was born to a 13-year-old mother. He lost his father, was devestated by Hurricane Katrina, grew up with barely enough to get by, and now, he's going to Yale. Galmon, the passionate art student, made a decision to direct his future toward a higher purpose than his circumstances may have dictated. Galmon is also a recipient of a Ron Brown scholarship.  (Photo: Chris Granger, Nola.com | The Times-Picayune)
