A Liberty High School junior wants to remember some forgotten veterans this Christmas.
Mikala Tapia, 16, has a passion for helping people. Six years ago she carried out a one-girl fundraising project for Hurricane Katrina victims. Already an accomplished baker by that time, she baked everything herself that she sold at the bake sale.
“She’s been cooking since she was 5,” said Mike Tapia, her father. “She’s done birthday cakes for friends.”
