Kay Anason • Honor Stones & Donations •

Kay was hired as the Donation Coordinator in May, 2009.  She coordinates donation funds, items, and grant work for The Highground (excluding event sponsors). With a background in business, The Highground has allowed her to use many aspects of her former experiences. Kay is not a veteran but has profound respect for our service personnel because she knows “The veteran doesn’t fight because he hates what is in front of him; he fights because he loves what he left behind”.  She also has learned from Highground visitors what the cost are for veterans and their families–the human cost. “If I can help one family, one veteran heal in some fashion, it will be a small token for what they have given me.”–Kay Anason
