Jason Kelly | Young Hero Award from Alabama Public Television
EDUCATION

Jason Kelly

East Lawrence High School

Hillsboro, Alabama

Jason is the youngest of four children and the only one that is living at home. Home and family are very important part of his life. His mother has Lou Gehrig’s disease and is wheelchair bound and totally disabled. His father has suffered open-heart surgery and is a candidate for dialysis at any time. Jason doesn’t let this get him down. He continues to be kind, caring, and uplifting to his parents, peers, and teachers.

Jason cares for his parents in many ways, physically and financially. Even with all his extracurricular activities, head ambassador, State FCCLA District I Vice-President, vice president of Key Club, Beta Club, Mu Alpha Theta, and an “A” student, he finds time and energy to work at a local grocery store to provide for his family.
