Local Celebrity Heroes

Celebrity Café & Bakery operates by the belief that a business should be involved in the communities within which they exist. And each year we try and do our part to donate, give back and participate. But we also know that there are a number of people within those communities who do as much (or more) and never receive recognition for what they do. So, as part of our 20th anniversary, we wanted to do something for those unsung heroes. We wanted to give them a place and time to be celebrated – those local heroes, our Local Celebrities.
And the winners are:
Laura Whittington served as an interim foster parent for newborns that were waiting for paperwork to be processed at the Edna Gladney Home for Unwed Mothers. Over the years, she took care of over 50 babies.
Working behind the scenes at the Colleyville Library for the past several years is Kay Newton’s claim to fame. She led a summer reading program that had over 1200 children signed up this year!
Serving her first term on the Colleyville City Council is just the last in a long list of volunteer opportunities for Carol Wollin. Other community involvement efforts include: Trustee for the GCISD, President of the Colleyville Garden Club, founder of the Colleyville Friends of the Library and the GCISD Education Foundation. She has been active in Colleyville Women’s Club as well as other organizations!
Dr. Melissa Rozas uses Halloween as an opportunity to help soldiers at war and those in nursing homes. As a dentist, she buys the candy that her young patients collect and then distributes that candy to soldiers and the elderly. All of this, and she takes every opportunity to support local young sports teams!
