Mayor Proclaims April 17, 2018 Payton Holmes Day
In this week’s Conway City Council meeting, Mayor Barbara Blain-Bellamy recognized Payton Holmes for her contributions made to the Conway community. Payton was born with a servant’s heart, and by age thirteen, founded Payton’s Partners in Service to promote community service by children and adults.
By partnering with more than thirty organizations, Payton has helped to collect more than $5 million for charitable causes. She was crowned Miss Conway High School in 2017, and during her reign participated in twenty plus service projects totaling over five hundred personal hours of service. Teaching children the importance of community service is another of Payton’s goals. Payton’s Partners in Service further promotes community service by youth in its scholarship offering.
After a speaking performance at South Conway Elementary, Payton was added to the school’s “Hero Wall of Fame” as their “Hero Award” recipient. The City of Conway also recognizes her commitment to our community, and that’s why April 17, 2018 was proclaimed Payton Holmes Day in the City of Conway.
