Miracle League volunteer director honored in Rogers

JONESBORO, Ark. – A Jonesboro resident is the Arkansas Parks’ Volunteer of the Year

Jonesboro resident Camilla Ballard was presented with the Arkansas Recreation and Parks Volunteer of the Year award this week at the association’s state banquet in Rogers.

Ballard, who serves as volunteer director of The Miracle League of Jonesboro and played a key role in its design and implementation, also volunteers in the church community and works as a substitute teacher.

City softball coordinator Sharron Turman said Ballard “has not only helped with The Miracle League Park build, but she is the league director, which means she coordinates all the players, uniforms, coaches and scheduling. This is just one of her volunteer jobs.”

Parks Director Wixson Huffstetler said, “Camilla’s been with us since Day One after we announced we were going to build a Miracle League, and without people like here, it would not exist.”
