Kellie Tyler

Louisiana

Kellie Tyler, Fannie C. Williams Middle School, New Orleans, was recognized for her participation in her school's Adopt-a-Grandparent program. Once a month, she and other volunteer members of her school choir go to a local nursing home, sings for its residents, leads them in songs and hand exercises, and gives each resident a basket of gifts. Kellie helps put the gift baskets together.
