Katie Meyler - katie@morethanme.org
After meeting Carlito, a 4-year-old boy who slept under a car in Bolivia, Katie was never the same. She knew she would spend her life working on behalf of Carlito and children like him. She lives by the motto, "Strangers are friends we haven't met yet."

Macintosh Johnson - West Point Scholarship Coordinator
West Point is home to Macintosh. He was born and raised here, and he knows the challenges of this area because they have been his own. Macintosh is passionate about seeing West Point rise, and he believes the only way that it can happen is if the children, unlike most of their parents, receive an education.
