Five Klamath River Early College of the Redwoods students plan to honor their elders through a community action project called Local Heroes.

The students' goal is to publicly recognize the tribal elders they feel have made a difference in their community.

Some stand out because of their military record, others as role models to their community.

andquot;They've done so much ... none of these people are recognized, so it's up to us,andquot; said Raven Eldredge, 14, an Early College of the Redwoods student.
