“I am so grateful for the opportunity to run for Snowflake Queen! I am running for the Snowflake Ball Queen because I believe that all older adults have the right to fulfilling, happy lives engaged with their community. The Senior Companion Program provides caring social supports to older adults and helps reduce issues such as isolation and loneliness. This program is such a needed resource and it provides invaluable services and support to the Knoxville Community. I am excited to support a cause that grows our community and brings people together.” - Emma Parrott
