Kennedy Harrison has been recognized as an outstanding volunteer at the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) and has been named “Volunteer of the Month” for October.

Harrison is a junior at Jackson State University majoring in political science with a concentration in legal studies. She says that volunteering is important to her, because it’s another way to help her community. “Volunteering can make a world of difference in your community, for an organization, or someone who you met through the organization volunteering that day. Volunteering is the quickest way to see change in your community,” Harrison says.

She chose to volunteer at MCM because she said she loves children and feels it is important to have a positive impact on a child’s life. “You never know what that child may be facing, so it’s imperative to make their time at the museum memorable,” Harrison says.

She states that one thing she has learned while volunteering at MCM is that patience and guidance is all you need when working with children. “Children look up to you and pay attention to the little things that you do. Being a great leader on and off campus for the children to see is important to me,” Hewitt says.

Sharon Griffin, MCM’s Volunteer Coordinator, says that Kennedy’s dedication, support, and hard work have not gone unnoticed during her time volunteering at MCM. “Kennedy’s compassion she shows to the guests is an inspiration for us all. She treats everyone with respect and kindness, no matter what the situation is,” Griffin says.

The Mississippi Children’s Museum is grateful for Kennedy Harrison’s time and dedication as an MCM volunteer. MCM offers volunteer opportunities for both youth and adults, for more information and to apply to volunteer visit https://mschildrensmuseum.org/jackson/get-involved/volunteer/
