Name: Karen Ballard
Hometown: Anderson, SC
Why We’re Saluting Karen:
Karen Ballard is kind and caring person who takes time out of her extremely busy life to give back to the Community in a variety of ways. Along with raising three children, Karen was a social worker for many years and is now the Director of the Senior Center at the Jewish Community Center. Karen enjoys working with senior citizens, and maintains a close personal relationship with many of them, going above and beyond the call of duty to help however she can. She is also a big supporter of animals in rescue shelters and has three rescue dogs herself.
Speaking of giving back to the community, Karen’s husband Mike is also quite heroic. A veteran Airborne Ranger and sniper, he’s now a member of the local police department and SWAT and also teaches at the Police Academy and “Active Shooter training.” When not working, you can also find Mike volunteering as a Security guard at the Jewish Community Center where Karen works with her seniors.
