Donna Hardy
Because of the help and encouragement she received from special women in her life, Donna has chosen always to be a part of mentoring young women. She has served as a mentor for Big Brothers & Big Sisters and Amachi. Additionally, she has supported Girl Talk. As a member of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc., She has worked on the educational committees (Delta Academy, GEMS, and EMBODI) to introduce the youth to role-models or service projects in the Knoxville community. A former educator, she promotes literacy/reading skills, occasionally volunteers to read to young children in Knox County Schools, and works with the book sales for Knox County's Friends of the Library. As a six year cancer survivor or "thriver" who wants to see others keep their faith on their journeys, she volunteers with various cancer related organizations: Thompson Cancer Center, UT Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society Reach to Recovery Program, and the Cancer Support Community. Currently, she attends Covington Theological Seminary and serves as a Stephen Minister at Fort Sanders Hospital in order to draw herself and others closer to God and to teach people more about HOPE and HEALING in Jesus Christ. Her favorite verse is Ephesians 2:10---For we are his workmanship, created in Jesus Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. -Recognized by Dean Sheard
