Shannon explained that planting a garden at her school changed not only her school but also her community. "You are in charge of your 'Milken race,' " she told the Milken Educators. "I needed to become the person the Award said I was. I soon learned that if you don't like something, change it. I did—and you can too."In this photo: Lowell Milken , Shannon Ryan (NM '14)
