Peachtree Ridge grad Katey Lippitt uses sports to empower youth with Kids Play International in Cambodia

A trip with the Georgia Southern women’s soccer team was a life-changing experience for Katey Lippitt.

Less than a year after her 2012 high school graduation from Peachtree Ridge, she joined her college classmates on an eye-opening, winter learning journey to an impoverished area of Jamaica. When she returned home, she couldn’t wait for another opportunity abroad, then a very new experience for someone who had never left the United States.
