One Hard Working Momma!
Hazel Karn, 43, is a hard-working mother of four and a grandmother to several. Ms. Karn has worked since a young age of sixteen to provide for her children the best that she could. She continues to do so, all while attending adult education classes.
Her dream job is to become a phlebotomist, but that dream was put on hold when she became pregnant at a young age. Ms. Karn states, “When my oldest was five months old, I found out I was expecting again my entire focus and energy went into being a good momma and working for them.” And that is what she does working thirty-five hours or more a work as a waitress at a local establishment in Milan, Indiana. She found it difficult to juggle class time and working and taking care of her family, but with the “help of her teacher, the flexible hours, and homework packets at the Education Center of Rising Sun” she has been able to achieve her high school diploma.
