LEONARD OLSON of the Sacred Heart Foundation of the Emerald Coast (L) made a special presentation to Katelyn Pendleton at the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC).
Katelyn is an amazing, brave survivor of child physical abuse and has received services from the Center. Through Sacred Heart’s hospital leadership “pay it forward” program, Leonard started an educational fund to
help Katelyn fulfill her goals. She aspires to one day be the director of the Children’s Advocacy Center. Until then, she is reaching out to tell her story to other children. Her message is “if someone is hurting you, tell someone until they listen.” Pictured (L-R) are Olson, Katelyn Pendleton, CAC Director Julie Hurst, Christy Pendleton, and Jeff Pendleton.
