NEISD student honored for selfless actions

Soleil Guckian given 2015 Student Heroes Award


SAN ANTONIO – A Northeast Independent School District student was honored Wednesday for her unselfish acts.

Soleil Guckian, a seventh grader at Bradley Middle School was presented with the 2015 Student Heroes Award. She is one of 16 students across the state to earn this designation.

Guckian made it her mission to help feed hungry students across San Antonio.

Last October, she organized a school food drive that raised 1,200 items for the San Antonio Food Bank.  

"I went with the food bank because lots of kids in Texas and technically around the world are hungry and don't have enough food to eat," said Guckian. "Actually one out of five kids in Texas don't have enough food to eat."

Guckian selfless actions did not stop with the drive. She continues to collect donations and encourages her community to get involved.
