Recently Luke Arney was named one of KVUE’s winners of the 30th annual Five Kids Who Care community service awards. Every year five awardees who give their time and talents to help others are selected.
A year ago, we highlighted Luke Arney. The Lake Travis High student with a passion for enriching children’s lives through books. Luke has dedicated himself to improving his community since his Freshman year.
The young philanthropist chose to advocate for literacy because he understood the power of words. Luke’s life has been filled with stories that encouraged, motivated, and inspired him to seek a need and work toward betterment.
Luke’s understanding of the influence books has on the quality of education received by children also contributed to his continued efforts.“Quality education is something that can take a child from a disadvantaged place into one with better circumstances and can affect the rest of their life and family,” he said.
He continues to work to promote the importance of literacy and getting books directly into the hands of children who need them the most.
Luke’s Little Free Libraries from his Eagle Scout Project remain in use at our BookSpringEd program schools: Blackshear, Houston, and Metz Elementary.
