Jessica, a native of Pikeville, KY, chose Heart Health Awareness as her platform because of an overwhelming number of heart related medical issues plaguing her family and friends. It became a very prevalent issue early in her life when one of her dearest friends was hospitalized and nearly died from heart problems. Soon after, as a summer camp counselor, she mentored a seven year old little angel who was preparing for her third open heart surgery. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the country with 80% of those deaths being preventable. To know that through education and awareness she can equip people with the simple preventative measures they need has driven her to her mission of improving the quality and longevity of lives.
Jessica had an informational table in the lobby on Health Heart issues, sang the National Anthem, and participated in Senior Night Activities for the seven PCHS Wildcat Seniors and talked to the crowd at halftime.
Besides Garrett, six other Wildcat Seniors celebrated their Senior Night: Mason Monroe, Ethan Moore, Austin Pyles, Mackenzie Colvin, Aaron Gibson and Andrew Antrobus, as well as senior Pep Band Members.
