Today’s Vibrant Person is Kellie Mullins!!
“I’m blessed. Really, really blessed. I cannot be thankful enough to be involved.” So says Kellie Mullins about her active participation in Elkhart’s schools.
Kellie is a member of the Board of Trustees for Elkhart Community Schools. She made a personal commitment to be involved. While campaigning, she sensed that parents and children needed a strong advocate. As the school system goes through some extensive changes, Kellie hopes to give them a voice.
Kellie studied cosmetology at the Career Center. She enjoyed her time there, learning her craft. She even had a chance to compete at a national level.
Today, Kellie is an experienced stylist. She is happily stationed at Allure Salon and Spa. It is a family oriented business with a staff of friendly and capable professionals.
“When I go to a graduation party or see their pictures, I know these kids,” Kellie tells us. “I have been cutting their hair since they were little.”
Being involved in the community is not new to Kellie. She has long been active in Parent-Teacher Organizations and other fundraising and volunteer projects. Today, she is involved in Girl Scouts with her granddaughter.
Kellie and her husband have three kids, two grandchildren a dog and a cat.
Note: Kellie is the one in the striped sweater in the middle of the picture. She really does enjoy being surrounded by children!
