Kelly Cox

Tennessee

Kelly Cox, Heritage High School, Maryville, served as a live-in care giver to an elderly woman during the past three summers. She lived with the woman, who could not afford to pay for live-in help, for more than 25 weeks, cooking and cleaning, helping her bathe and dress, and aiding her throughout her daily routine. Cox provides companionship to her elderly friend throughout the school year as well.

"You are never too young to help, nor too smart to learn."
