SOUTHLAKE (KRLD) — Homecoming in Texas is defined by decorative mums and the crowning of a school’s homecoming queen and king. But to one girl in Southlake, the event was an opportunity not to celebrate — but to help those in need.

Destiny Rose is a 15-year-old high school student in Southlake who did something very selfless for homecoming last week. Instead of purchasing a mum, Destiny and a group of friends took that money and donated it to Youth World, a non-profit youth organization that reaches out to “at-risk” children.

“There were four total students that worked together to do this this year,” said Angie, Destiny’s mother. “They are going to feed 16 families full traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We buy all the groceries and then we distribute them the Saturday before Thanksgiving in South Dallas.”

For her actions, we recognize Destiny as our KRLD Community Hero.
