2019 Spirit Award Winner: Abigail Naumann

United Way of Porter County once again partnered with The Times of Northwest Indiana to present the 2019 Spirit Awards. The Awards celebrate passionate, courageous volunteers who are dedicated to serving their communities and exhibiting what it means to Live United.

At sixteen years old, Abigail Naumann is our youngest-ever Spirit Award winner. Abigail uses her nonprofit, Abby's Step-by-Step NWI to speak up against gun violence and volunteers with the American Cancer Society to educate about the dangers of tobacco use.
