It was December 9th 2009. A young high school student named Kelsey Leiux was injured in a traffic accident. A month later she’s still recovering with medical expenses continuing to mount. So with one seeming insurmountable obstacle facing them a family, a school, and a community untied as one to help their angel. Everyone knew that the road to recovery was going to be a long one but they weren’t going to let Kelsey travel it by herself. They organized car washes and dinners in an effort to raise money for her the expenses that were laid out in front of her.
So as I drive up to the school I start to think that this could be more than a check presentation. There was a chance to show a young lady how much care and compassion one community was willing to give to her. I knew I had to stay late in order to put this one together since stories like this are few and far between and they deserve a place on the rundown. After the final edit was made it was worth it.
Kelsey, I want to wish you a full and speedy recovery. You have touched the lives of a lot of people, including mine. Take care and God Bless.
