Ruth King

West Virginia

Ruth King, Mercer Christian Academy, Princeton, volunteers as a peer counselor at the Abel Crisis Pregnancy Center. She participated in a month-long training course to prepare for her position, and now spends several hours each week talking with women who are experiencing an unplanned or unexpected pregnancy. She offers the women support and helps them plan for their futures.

"Volunteering is an invaluable part of growing up because you learn so much about yourself and other people."
