Baldwin and several of her students organized a collection drive of school supplies as students cleaned out their lockers at the end of the school year. Students donated 22 boxes of books, backpacks, pencil cases and other supplies that otherwise would have been thrown away or given to the Salvation Army.

"I'm so proud of these students, who, through their generosity and concern for others, stepped up for such a great cause," Baldwin said.
