Thursday night, we hosted the second annual Bright Future banquet, where the Greene County Daily World named Ian Staggs as the Shining Star.
Typically, we would invite the previous winner to our banquet, but unfortunately, our 2017 Shining Star was unable to make it. Last year, the late Jaden Lauderdale was named our Shining Star for her work at Riley while she was a patient. (Check out Patti's story from last year here.)
Since Jaden couldn't make it to this year's banquet, I put together a video remembering the young woman who inspired so many.
