    You should make good things happen everywhere you can.

    Remington Youngblood

    Remington's great-grandfather was a Marine who served in World War II. And Remington has also served his country by founding Change4Georgia. In the past five years, his organization has raised more than one million dollars in cash and donations to support service members and their families. Together with his classmates, Remington has undertaken a wide range of programs with whimsical names: Operation Oatmeal, Operation Hope, Suds for Soldiers, and Yum Yum Drive. There's also Dynamite Diaper Drive, and Remington's always coming up with new programs. Change4Georgia has now broadened into a community effort that inspires students to perform their civic duty. His volunteers raise funds for medical research, serve veterans meals, plant trees, and much more. Anything you can imagine they've done because Remington thinks "you should make good things happen everywhere you can."
