I've known Kaycee and her family for a while now and she's one of the most enthusiastic, civic-minded people I've met.  We were able to catch up recently when she organized a voter registration drive at the Henderson Community college.

By way of background, she became interested in politics and community activism in the 2016 election, mostly because of friends who were also politically active.  It started when a friend asked her to volunteer on a local political campaign.

Kaycee is currently active in Henderson Democratic Party and works at the Henderson Community College, Henderson Area Arts Alliance, and Henderson Family Magazine.

She's particularly concerned about pensions and whether they'll continue to exist in the future.  Also, equal rights and opportunity for all are very important to her.

When asked what drives her to do things like voter registration drives, she said, "apathy is the world's greatest enemy.  If we give up, then things aren't going to change for the better."
