Thursday, March 04, 2021

Born and raised in Springfield, Lauren Kelley is rooted in the city and wants to see it thrive.

The founder of Leaders of Change, Kelley wants to be a part of a collaborative effort to improve racial equality throughout the community. And she’s using the platform created through her organization to help build the bridges to make that happen.

A 2007 graduate of the former North High School, Kelley started working for the Clark County Juvenile Court in 2011 in the Clerk’s Office. When she had the opportunity to become a corrections officer in the Juvenile Detention Center, she was excited for the chance, and she’s enjoyed her role there throughout the last seven years.

“I’ve always liked working with young people, and so I knew I would like having that captive audience and being able to work with them,” she says. “When I transferred to Detention, it was a blessing because I was able to work with them through Project Jericho, and I was able to do a lot of music and art projects with them.”
