Caroline Hickey -- Vocal Performance
School: Maple Mountain High School
Parents: Emily Hickey and John Hickey
Hometown: Mapleton

"I get great joy from teaching others and plan to teach vocal performance to my future children and others in the community. I also find that when I teach and share with others, I learn from those I teach. Just as Disney puts it wonderfully in the song 'Son of Man,' 'In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.'
