Olivia Henken is a busy young woman. As a senior at U of L, a contestant in this year’s Miss Kentucky pageant, and a country singer promoting her debut album, she has already surpassed the goals of most 23-year-olds. But Henken has taken it a step further. She has used her contacts, her voice and her glowing personality to organize a benefit for the Lily Sarah Grace Fund, a charity that allows public elementary school teachers to apply for grants by submitting their ideas about how they can incorporate music and the arts into classroom learning. All profits raised at Henken’s benefit will fund one such grant for a Kentucky teacher. The charity ball will feature a silent auction, a 50-50 draw, local music and food. The price of admission buys two complimentary drinks and a chance to win a flatscreen TV. Kudos, Olivia! —Simon Isham
