Mitch Albom: Haitian student torn between college in Michigan and his earthquake-ravaged family (Detroit Free Press)

Lorvens

Grade: Collége 2

Birthday: January 12

Lorvens is a young leader, and like Spider-Man, about whom he loves to read, he’s beginning to learn that with great power comes great responsibility. As the nannies used to say, if trouble was stirring, you’d usually be able to find the bold and venturesome Lorvens in the mix. But he’s quickly growing and maturing, and even hopes to become pediatrician — or even a surgeon — so he can take special care of the babies at the malnutrition clinic where many of the students volunteer. With a silly and fun personality, he loves to make people smile. His favorite activities are drawing, playing soccer and hockey.
