St. Paul’s senior is 2017 Young Hero

St. Paul’s School senior Reagan Hill is one of nine students to receive the 2017 Louisiana Young Heroes Award, sponsored by Louisiana Public Broadcasting and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge. He will be honored at a luncheon April 3 at the Governor’s Mansion in Baton Rouge.
The award celebrates achievements of students who have inspired those around them and devoted time, talents and energy to making their schools, churches or communities better places.
Reagan survived a diving accident when he was 14 and initially was paralyzed. Because of his attitude, strength and perseverance, he walked out of the hospital six weeks later. The accident spurred him to found “Reagan’s Peanut Butter Project” that has raised over $12,000 and has assisted more than 900 individuals who have suffered injuries or are dealing with cancer in a three-state region. Reagan helps the Covington Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Children’s Advocacy Center and other organizations. Reagan also is an honor student with a 4.02 grade point average.
