#SpotlightSunday with Dream Big Committee Volunteer, Kirby Jett Harris

How did you become involved with the CSC? Through the Fayetteville Chamber’s Leadership Fayetteville program and my friendship with Emily Rappe’ Fisher.

Why do you stay involved? I stay involved because child abuse is something that isn’t a fun topic that people don’t discuss – my involvement helps spread the awareness and create the discussions that need to happen in this community.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering for the CSC? Knowing that probably the scariest situation of a child’s life is made just a bit easier with the playful, caring, and comforting  atmosphere at the CSC.

Fun Fact about yourself…  I didn’t have a middle name until I was 30!
