2017 Beauty Revived Senior Session

December 31, 2017

Beauty Revived Senior Winner at Glenoe River Mill Historic District

This last week of 2017 did not go as planned. I became sick with a horrible cold/mild flu. Thankfully, I’m starting to feel better. So, as I sit here, warm and cozy on my couch while the temperatures drop, I want to share a session that has my heart: my 2017 Beauty Revived Senior Session.

Each year, I ask all of you to nominate a deserving senior who is making an impact on the community around them and/or is facing or has overcome incredible obstacles in their life. This senior wins a free Beauty Revived senior session with professional hair and makeup! I’m always excited to read the nominations showcasing the many incredible young people in Alamance County.

This year, a young lady in our midst was nominated twice! As I read about her, I knew she was my Beauty Revived Senior for 2017. Kelsey is fun, witty, and full of personality. I so enjoyed getting to know her and her family.

Meet Kelsey!

Beauty Revived Nomination One:

“Kelsey is an amazing girl!  She is always willing to jump in and help anyone, anytime. She adores children of all ages and enjoys teaching them and sharing with them!  Kelsey is also very passionate about YoungLife & WyldLife and sharing her faith with others.

In September of 2015, very early in the volleyball season, Kelsey was playing and went for the ball that ended in her tearing her ACL and meniscus. She was devastated and it was a very painful experience. In October, she had surgery and the healing process began. It was a very long and trying time, but she persevered through. Kelsey continues to play volleyball and be on the team even though her playing time is reduced due to continued pain in her knee. However, she is the biggest cheerleader for her team and is always there for them!  Kelsey took a painful experience and uses it now as a testimony of perseverance and that everyone has a purpose no matter what they are doing!”

Beauty Revived Nomination Two:

“I had the pleasure of having Kelsey volunteer each day in my classroom last year for an hour a day. I can’t begin to say how extradinary this young lady is. Her kindness and patience working with my first graders was so admirable. She went above and beyond what one may expect a high schooler to do in a classroom. Kelsey made it her mission to not only help children grow academically, but also provide love and support to those students that just needed a little extra attention. Getting to know her better, I came to realize that Kelsey exhibits these qualities in every aspect of her life. She is one of the most dedicated, caring young ladies I have ever met. She is such an inspiration and will do wonderful things as a contributing member to society. I nominate Kelsey with hopes of her receiving something special as a thanks for always making others feel special and loved. She would truly appreciate this opportunity and deserves to be celebrated and made to feel as special as the lives she touches on a daily basis.”
