Kelly is a student at Gainesville High School. She founded an organization called \"Bored For a Cause\". She started this organization because too many teens were complaining about being bored. She set up a Facebook page to announce volunteer opportunities in the area for teens to join. Kelly has also created events to get teens involved. Kelly spends about 500 hours a year in planning, and working events. Her main groups that she volunteers with are Noah\'s Endeavor, Gainesville Community Playhouse and the Boys and Girls Club. Kelly was recently crowned Miss Florida Sr. Sweetheart and is using that opportunity to get even more involved with her community.
