Most folks know Opal Phillips as a seemingly tireless advocate for Anderson County’s aging population.
What they might not have known until now is how much she also helps the county’s youth.
Phillips was named last Thursday as the RSVP Trailblazers United Way of the Bluegrass Volunteer of the Year for her efforts in pairing seniors with students in need of someone to assist them in learning.
Patrick Tuck, the program’s director, said choosing Phillips for the award was easy.
