Laquisha Payne


Laquisha Payne, Kingsbury High School, Memphis, was recognized for volunteering at a local nursing home. Despite her own developmental disability and visual impairment, Laquisha spends time there playing games, keeping them company, serving as their arms and legs, and knowing she has made a difference in their lives. She goes on trips with the elderly residents, who are eager to share their experiences with Laquisha.
