Lauren Klym, Creator of the Safety Lockdown Plan for Stamford, Connecticut’s School System Currently a Freshman at Syracuse University

Bet you didn’t think that a young girl of 17 could make a huge change? Lauren proved that you don’t have to be an adult to make change. Hearing about all of the school shootings, she took it upon herself to do something. And so a Safety Lockdown Plan for Lauren’s high school was devised. A plan that has been adapted by the whole Stamford, Connecticut school system. To be clear, Lauren designed it.
