Leprechaun Chase

| March 14, 2016

WEST LAFAYETTE – About 40 runners and walkers came out to support Habitat for Humanity and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a little early at the four mile Lucky Leprechaun Chase on March 12 in West Lafayette. “I’m super appreciative of everybody who came out and it was nice to see some families here,” said Brittleigh Smith, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Coshocton County. The race also brought some folks from out of town. Hannah Fout and Wendy Ellis drove two and half hours to take part in it. “My goal is to run a race in every county and this is number 65 for me out of 88,” Ellis said. “I thought it was a cool goal to have and I’ll be finished up with it in September.” Proceeds from the race benefit Habitat for Humanity, which will soon break ground on its 16th house in the community.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
