    I know it is too late to nominate someone however I have a five year old who I believe deserves something for what he did for his community of troy , Missouri. His name is Houston Higer. He goes to Main Street Elementry in troy Missouri . The local Journal ran a story about what he did . There is a video on .
    Anyways he saw the story about Hailey Owens , The 10 from springfeild , mo who was kidnapped and kill. It really bother him,and he came to me with an idea. He said mom I wish I could tech all the kids the self defense techniques I lerned from mr. Steens class. Houston wrote out a buisness plan for his seminar and . presented it to his assistant principle.He thought it was a great idea ! With the help from his ata instructor and assitant principle , Houston taught 200 fellow student, self defense technique in hopes to keep them same aginst kidnappers.
