A Comeaux High School sophomore from Youngsville, Elijah Evans, has been honored as one of Louisiana's top two youth volunteers of 2014. He was presented with an engraved silver medallion to recognize his selection by The Prudential Spirit of Community. Elijah works to raise awareness of child abuse and improve the lives of foster children by promoting and hosting an annual Christmas party for children in foster care. The award includes a $1,000 prize and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for several days of national recognition events. During the trip, ten of the State Honorees will be named America's top youth volunteers of 2014.
