Local Volunteer up for National Title

Several years ago Special Olympics Louisiana was approached by an organization called Kids Wanna Help.

A young girl named Mary Brent Brown and her sister Beverly had started an organization to raise money for different charities and at the same time, teach other kids social responsibility. For years the organization donated proceeds from various events, such as Fashion Shows and Lemonade Brigades to Special Olympics Louisiana. Mary Brent and Beverly also won a Special Olympics Louisiana “Leaders of Tomorrow” award and were recognized by the First Lady of Louisiana, Mrs. Supriya Jindal.

Now Mary Brent is 17 years old, she has been nominated and selected as one of Glamour Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Elite Eight. You can vote for her everyday until September 19th to make it in to the top 4! To vote or to read more, click this link:
