Tulsa’s News on 6 Covers The Shining Honor Project

TULSA, Oklahoma – A Green Country group is building life skills while paying respects to veterans who are no longer with us.

With scrub brushes in hand and American flags on their work vests, a team of four is busy at Tulsa’s Rose Hill Cemetery making the headstones of veterans and their families look like new again. 

“I enjoy it, every minute of it,” said A New Leaf client Kim Lowe. “I like to scrub them extra clean because it gives me a sense of responsibility for what I do.”

Kim Lowe has been part of A New Leaf for a little more than 2 years. It’s a non-profit that helps enhance life skills of those with those developmental disabilities.

“It’s given me survival skills, every day life skills,” she said.

“Our whole goal is a pathway to independence and helping our clients to from where they are to the next level,” A New Leaf marketing director Kevin Harper said.

A New Leaf has now teamed up with another non-profit, Shining Honor Project, which works with care-giving organizations to offer patriotic employment opportunities.

“Being able to honor nation’s service men and women has such great meaning to them,” said Shining Honor Project Executive Director Erin Wambold.
