Kim Garrett recently spoke to our girls at Eastern Hills High School during a private luncheon. She shared her personal experience of overcoming adversity and inspired our girls to pursue their passions, despite their current situations. Not only did she relate to our girls, but was genuinely interested in the problems they were currently facing. Her presence was self-less, down to earth, and incredibly sweet! The girls were able to share their stories and ask her personal questions as well. In fact, they did not want the session to end! Kim can relate to anyone of any age and will motivate them to work hard and take chances. We are very thankful that she has such a heart for her alma mater. She is a must have guest speaker and we cannot wait to see her again!
