This segment from the 2009 Young Heroes Award Ceremony features a profile of honoree Kristin Slack, a senior at Sarepta High School. At age eleven, Slack was seriously injured in a car accident. In addition to losing her eye in the crash, she has also endured ten reconstructive surgeries. Despite her physical struggles, Slack is the top student in her class, an organizer for the Operation Christmas Child gift boxes, and the reigning Miss Sarepta High.
