Sixteen-year-old Donald “Tré” Bishop lives by the motto, "Go out every day and change the world."

That motto helped earn him the honor of being a 2024 Louisiana Young Hero, a program celebrating young people who have excelled in academics and public service.

Born and raised in Lafayette, Bishop has contributed to his community by doing small things that have made significant impacts, a news release said. He once saved his allowance to buy socks for the homeless. At 11 years old, he created a political sign recycling program. And in 2023, he raised $49,500 in three days to help St. Bernadette Clinic and the Lourdes Foundation.
