Rotary constructs ramp for Kayla Gray

Members of the Rotary Club of Madison County and volunteers constructed their 834th handicap ramp, a 10-foot access ramp with a 4’ by 4’ landing leading to a 6’ ramp Thursday, Sept. 23 for Kayla Gray. Kayla and her husband, Michael, are life-long residents of the area. Michael now works for the University of Georgia in their information technology branch. Kayla was in a car accident when she was 3 years old, and suffered a spinal cord injury that has left her wheelchair-bound since that moment. Kayla worked as an administrator in both a car dealership and a truck dealership, but now is a full-time student at Brenau University pursuing a bachelor’s degree in psychology. “The ramp crew sincerely hopes the handicap ramp will lessen the stress of their busy schedules,” Rotary leaders said. The Rotarians and volunteers who worked on the ramp included Johnny Minish, Ed Brown, David McGinnis, Bruce Gandy, Harry Rice, Alan Phillips, Artry Bishop, John Taylor, and Mitchell Hill and Don Sullinger.
