Lorie Riddell is mother of two, my sister and me. The youngest of three girls as well as having two step brothers. She is still married to my dad, Michael Riddell of 28 years. She is a rambunctious women that has kind and caring center. Even though she is a entertaining person she passionate about caring and helping others. More often than not putting others above herself. Her life was influenced by her father who was involved with the Red Cross diaster team so they moved a lot when she was a child. She followed in his footsteps by going on to teach CPR and other classes Red Cross offers. She is a wonderful mom that is super caring and she is one of my best friends. I hope to be like my mom when I get married and have children.

Heather Barron’s conservative upbringing in a small Texas town continues to foster her sense of self in unlikely yet certain ways. An early mentor and English teacher in Texas encouraged Heather’s curiosity, open-mindedness, and love of literature and learning, which manifests itself today in both personal and professional facets of her life. While an English graduate student at the University of Kentucky, overwhelming kindness shown to her by part-time employers Mr. and Mrs. Ball of Ball Homes led to a complete career change. Though now a Human Resources manager for Ball Homes, Heather still maintains her initial academic interests, as evidenced by the fact that she named an entire subdivision of street signs after famous authors. Heather’s curiosity and sense of adventure leads her to travel across the world, even having visited all seven continents in one year. Though confronted with multiple tragedies throughout her lifetime, Heather continues to face life with an optimistic and good-humored attitude, inspiring others to pursue their full potential and ponder life’s big questions.
