They haven't even graduated from high school yet, but some remarkable kids are already having a huge impact on the community of Brandon and halfway around the world.
More than 120 kids are learning a lot this summer at Hoover's Martial Arts in Brandon. But it's what they're doing outside the classroom that's having the biggest impact on these young students.
"I collected shoes for the kids in Africa to schools and orphanages," Josiah Adams said.
"I collected food for the food pantry," Adriauna Alexander said.
"Raised money for the Special Olympics," Tucker Taylor said.
"I was thinking I wanted to help kids who couldn't afford backpacks," Logan Stough said.
Instructor Rob Green challenged the students to make an impact this summer but didn't expect the students to step up the way they did.
"When you think about it, there have been thousands of dollars generated towards different goals and different organizations and charities," Green said. "It took off in a way that I was really surprised with and pleased with."
Nine-year-old Alexander went door-to-door asking for donations for the Brandon Food Pantry. She rounded up more than 419 cans of food - the most anyone her age collected for the pantry.
"It made me feel really happy because I know that I did something very, very nice for people who can't afford food," Alexander said.
Eight-year-old Conner Erickson collected 327 books and gave them to children after reading to them in area daycares and churches.
"I'm going to give the rest of the books to the children's hospital and The Children's Inn," Erickson said.
But the students had a service role model. Green spent time improving poverty in Costa Rica over the summer and kept in touch online.
"We compared projects with what I was doing over there, maybe helping build a house and what they were doing up here, putting shoes together for people in Africa," Green said. "So it was a cool thing to see not just the students learn about service but also to get the community involved as well as the families."
Because of the success of the Make an Impact project, Green says he has plans to challenge the students again next summer.
