During the 3rd Annual Carolina Music Video Awards we will be honoring Chanell Ketchmore with the "Spirit of Community Award". Chanell is the founder of "Ketchmore Kids Inc." and has been a pillar in our community for over a decade by providing our youth with a better tomorrow.
As a teenager, Chanell Ketchmore, was always active volunteering, mentoring, tutoring, etc... in her hometown of Newport News VA. In 2005, Chanell relocated to Charlotte, officially created the Ketchmore Kids name, and the first Ketchmore Kids workshop was held at the Salvation Army Women and Children's Shelter on Spratt Street. Chanell, and her husband, Kazar of Kazar Ent., and their children, bridge their resources, love for the arts, and passion for helping others together to make this organization a success! They work hard to embody the phrase "There is no I in Team". Today, Ketchmore Kids serves hundreds of children and families each year! This agency has blossomed from a seed planted in the mind, soul, and heart of one individual, and grown into a multi-office agency, with employees operating out Newport News, VA, Charlotte, Gastonia, Salisbury, and Concord NC areas.
The mission of Ketchmore Kids Inc. is to assist youth, families, and communities in hoping for a better tomorrow, healing old wounds, and being able to live peacefully. In doing this, Ketchmore Kids' services focus on celebrating hip-hop culture, the arts, and using artistic elements to help promote positive social change!
