The South Central Community Action Program recently appointed a new member to its board of directors.

Katie Hopkins, a 28-year-old student and mother, took the position and attended her first board meeting Monday, March 1. Hopkins fills the seat left by Jonathon Williams, who passed away in October.

Hopkins has three children, two of whom are enrolled in Head Start. She became a Circles Leader in August, and she is a member of the Community of Teachers Program at the IU School of Education.

The SCCAP Board By-Laws state that at least eight members of the board must be representatives from the lower-income group. Hopkins serves in one of these positions.

“As a Circles Leader, I’m passionate about doing my part,” she said, “even if it’s just a small part, to end poverty—for me, personally, for my children and their children, for my community, and for my world.”
