Georgetown Teen Spearheads Memorial to Women Who Served on the Homefront

A Georgetown teen (and GM’s neighbor and a top notch babysitter) is spearheading an effort to construct a new memorial to honor the women who served on the home front during World War II. She was featured on the CBS Evening News last night.

Kenney has been literally been working on this since she was a fifth grader. She has testified in front of Congress multiple times (one representative recently recognized her from the time she had testified before him years ago). She’s garnered the support of Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton and a host of organizations. This thing is going to get built. Pretty impressive accomplishment for a teenager.
