meet team 6: anna and holly







Anna and Holly are a mother/daughter dynamic duo headed to Uganda for the very first time. They are one of two parent/child teams that will be part of Team 6.

Speaking from experience, having taken my son Max to the orphanage when he was 19, I can safely say this will be an unforgettable and powerful experience for the these parents and children. Sharing a journey like this is huge on so many levels.

Anna is a senior at Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, Kansas. She is a captain of the swim team and runs cross-country.  Anna is visiting colleges and is interested in Kansas State University and the University of Arkansas.  She hopes to study International Relations, International Business or pre-law.

Holly is a labor and delivery nurse in Topeka. She teaches clinicals at Washburn University School of Nursing. She will complete her nurse practitioner masters in May. She enjoys running, biking and swimming.

Holly and Anna learned about Change the Truth from Holly's parents after they attended the annual Friendraiser/Fundraiser in 2011. They were moved by the children at St. Mary Kevin Orphanage, the struggles they face and the efforts of CTT to help provide assistance. Holly and Anna are in the process of collecting needed supplies for the medical clinic and are excited to meet the children!
