In the early 1800s, a successful businessman watched as young homeless girls roamed the docks of Baltimore, selling items to survive. He thought that if they just had an education, that could make all of the difference. So he began planning for a school. When the Samuel Ready School for Female Orphans closed its doors in 1977, a scholarship foundation took its place, and in the past 20 years, it has given $10 million in financial assistance to about 250 young girls in the Baltimore area so that they can complete middle and high school at one of six prestigious independent schools.

Teenager Kendall Reitz set out to become an advocate for improved mental illness awareness in the aftermath of last year's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., when a disturbed 20-year-old named Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and six adults. As horrific as the crime was, Kendall felt news coverage of that mass shooting and others fed false notions that people with mental illness tend to be violent. "It's just way blown out of proportion," she said.
