I would like to nominate Kaye Yoak of Pleasant Hill for the Shining Star Award.
Not only does she hold down a full time job, but she lives with, works with, and cares for her parents.
For as long as I can remember, she has contributed to the rearing of many Yoak children. And I am talking quality care including, but not limited to freshly baked apple pies for the children when they awake from naps.
She gives lessons on community service including weeding, planting, and beautifying the sidewalk by the Dollar General store, lessons on sportsmanship and supporting local teams, and lessons in lending a helping hand to neighbors.
It seems she works non-stop.
She chops and stacks firewood, chases loose cattle, chauffeurs relatives to doctors appointments and supervises their various medications and helps their convalescences.
She is truly an asset to her family, a true Calhounian.
The community is the recipients of this woman's good will.
I don't think you will find a more selfless person, nor do I think you will find anyone more deserving of our appreciation - A Shinin Star.
