Raghav Sehtia, grade 11, was recently recognized for his efforts to fight hunger by being named a 2011 Stephen J. Brady STOP Hunger Regional Honoree. A short story on his achievement was published in the San Jose Mercury News on Aug. 22. He requested that the money be donated to charity. In March, Sehtia received the Platinum Award from the Second Harvest Food Bank for his work in organizing food drives for the past four years.
During the 2010 holiday season, Sehtia held a baked goods sale that raised approximately $1,800, which he then donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank. Sehtia calls volunteering a “passion” of his, and has volunteered at such places as the Sunnyvale Hindu Temple and the Good Samaritan Hospital. Kudos!
