CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — This Kid to Know feels good after starting a movement which is putting smiles on faces all over Central Illinois.

Summer Nagele holds the title of Miss Illinois Amazing Preteen. Her platform with that honor is pretty amazing too.

The Franklin Middle School 7th grader started a Be Someone’s Hero Day. She plastered the walls of school with reminders and encouraged people to post what they were doing on her Facebook page.

The principal says Summer is a hero herself to her classmates, showing what someone can accomplish while living with a rare form of muscular dystrophy. Summer wants everyone to get on board.

Champaign Mayor Deb Feinen even issued an official proclamation declaring September 28 Summer Nagele’s Be Someone’s Hero Day. The 12-year old was there for it all.
