STAR of the Month

Our December STAR Club member was Kay Hicks, a member since 2016 and an active member of the Education & Libraries CSP. As a professional Certified Sign Language Interpreter, she was instrumental in organizing her CSP’s participation with Ms. Foster’s hearing-impaired students at Hiland Park Elementary School. Kay logs many hours of volunteering for and outside of the Club: tutoring for Girl’s Inc., volunteering at the voting polls, with VITA , with FLOW [for which our club was recognized by GFWC International], and more. Kay does not wait to be asked to help, she just jumps in and does it. Congratulations, Kay!
