Ruby Bridges
By: Caleb G.
Ohio, Grade 5



I am nominating Ruby Bridges to the Honor Roll because she did something very brave and honorable. When Ruby was just 6 years old, she walked up to the steps of an all white school as a black everyday. There were a lot of people there screaming at her, but she still went to school there, even though no one sent their kids there anymore. Eventually, kids started coming again. Ruby helped unsegregate the schools!
