Helen Keller
By: Nicole D.
New Jersey, Grade 5



I nominate Hellen Keller because of her hard work. She set example for many others who are blind, can not hear, and (or) can not speak. Her work was of some the greatest known to man. As a young child she was wild. At meals she would run around the table and put her hands in every one's plates and then shove her hands in her mouth. She would walk around the house groaning and moaning noises and the only way to shut her up was to give her candy. Then a highly ranked teacher came. She tought Helen to sit still, know where things were and know what they were. It is now said that Helen Keller has even written a few books! She was an extemely hard worker. These are the reasons I nominate Helen Keller to the Honor Roll.
