I know the director very well, she is a true christian, a loving mom, a grand mom, a wife, a friend just like all of us. She has a job to do and she is doing quiet well. I think the one that needs to worry is the one employee gone that couldnt even keep her husband happy and lost him to another woman.. Why are people always pointing a finger.. Let the director do her job, and lets all get a life and move on....What about the hunger problem in Graves county
You are a hypocrit. You stick up for the director then put someone down.and dont use religion what does that have to do with anything!! knowing lee anne that means being a christian means nothing.shes a cheap unorganized person that treats her workers like cotton pickers, graves is starving because of places like ju kevil Do you know for sure she couldnt keep her husband happy? Maybe you cant keep your husband happy, i would say your a big person i know who you are , you have your tounge up lee annes rear!. I cant believe I am even responding. This is so juvinile. And the reason there is a hunger problem is Graves county is because everyone wants you to work your butt off for $7.25 $8.00 an hour. You cant feed a family on that crap pay.

Never have worked there but know how they operate. And Kevil Corner does need a new staff. It seems my donations never make it to the sales floor. Staff likes them, keeps them, never pays for them.
You are absolutely correct!!! I have been told that it happens by an employee and it pisses me off!! Just because the money is to go to the JU Kevil foundatio/school!

At one time the J.U. Kevil was a very valuable asset to MANY in this community!!! My uncle went there and my grandfather was one of the very first board members who helped get the foundation/center started. Without it my grandmother would have NEVER been able the leave the house, my uncle had to have 24 hour care, he couldn't speak, feed himself or dress himself.. Etc
They did teach him some sign language, how to remove his shirt and small thing.

I do remember when I was in high school he was able to put ink pens together for some company that had a contract with the Kevil.

I don't know about the employees now, but years ago the were great and so was the staff including board members. As with anything time changes everything, and years ago they were about help the handicapped try to reach the highest potential.

Unhappy employees in this field (who deal with those mentally and physical challenged) make for a bad situation! I hate to hear that employees there are so underpaid! I know at one time there were many people at the Kevil that had no family and the foundation/center was there only true family.

I guess my point being is PLEASE don't stop caring about the J.U. Kevil foundation/center or stop giving donations to them because for some that is ALL THEY HAVE!! For my family it was truly a blessing!!!

I hope that something gives with employee pay and that the board gets things going in the proper manner (along with the administrator over the center).

It is not the same as you remember. It is a bad place. They treat you badly. Like someone said "If you are not their pick" You are treated with disrespect, and half the time they don't even speak to you. Its a disgrace.

I'm not sure about JU kevil but I have a family member that attends Creative Enterprises of Four Rivers in Paducah. There is nothing but positive things I hear from others. That's why we chose them for our family member.

the employees at the kevil corner store are good people and very nice.and its not true about merchandise not making it to the floor,they hold it in the back if they dont have room for it on the sales floor,when they get room for it ,it goes on the floor for sale and if its in to bad of shape it goes to the trash or they put it outside in front so that its free for the taking if someone wants it.i shop there and i talk to the employees.they dont need new staff.so talk trash about someone else not them.

I just don't understand how someone can write "true Christian" and then put either something that was told to them in confidence or just very vicious gossip in the same paragraph. Gossip is one of the most destructive things that a person could do to another person. Isn't one of the Ten Commandments something about giving false witness against your neighbor.. Where is Mr. Knight? You're not dead just retired right? Even though there was the Internet and email when he was still there there was NEVER a need for something like topics! It is truely disheartening to know what Mr. Knight and other community members, consumer families and former staff built has started to crumble so quickly.
I have never known Kevil Korner especially Donna and Deanna to be nothing but kind and helpful. Their hearts have always been about the individuals the JUKevil Center supposedly serve.
Oh by the way-When has money ever been more important than the integerty and reputation of a place that has helped so many?
Why isn't some of this mentioned in the newsletter?
Hey "Big One" the best revenge or just desserts is to let the cheaters have each other!
Everyone needs to pray for the JUKevil Center to weather this storm & come out on the other side!
Remember the bottem line is to serve the people you serve in a way that is for THEIR best interest.
Isn't that the reason the JUKevil Center & store was founded?

I am just wondering how the staff gets a bonus for the work that the clients do? Bet the citizens of Mayfield was not aware that staff profits off of the clients that do all the hard labor, and they do not see a bonus! Citizens do you really want to keep paying a tax for this type of business? Its a disgrace.

I used to work there as staff and while the clients do work,they dont work all day and its there choice if they want to work. They go on outings to movies, YMCA, out to lunch and there are classes they can attend in JU Kevil. If it wasent for the staffs hard work JU Kevil would not run. Alot of these clients are VERY hard to deal with. It takes alot of patience and understanding. The problem at JU Kevil is they DONT pay the staff enough money for all there HARD WORK. I left there for that reason. Its like working for a sweat shop. The director picks who she wants to give a raise too and who she dosent give a raise too. She fires the workers that work hard. I dont get it. What could she possibly be thinking. I dont know how she sleeps at night. There are things going on there that the citizens of Mayfield should know about and if they knew they would get rid of Leigh Ann and her side kick Jody. JU Kevil could be a great place with the right people running it.

I used to worked there as staff but I left.While the clients do work they dont work all day and it is there choice if the want to work or not. They go on outings to movies, YMCA, lunch among other things or they can take a class in JU Kevil. If it wasent for all the HARD WORK the staff does JU Kevil would NOT run. Some of the clients are VERY hard to deal with. It takes ALOT of patience and uderstanding. The problem is they dont pay the staff enough for all the HARD WORK they do. You never get a break. You are around the clients all day even at lunch and breaks and they are in your face. At times it can be over whelming. The director Leigh Ann picks who she wants to give a raise too and even if you do a GREAT job if she dose not like you she will not give you a raise. She fires HARD WORKERS because she dosent like them. I dont know how she can sleep at night. There are things going on there that the citizens of Mayfield should know and if they knew they would not want this business running. They need to get rid of Leigh Ann and her side kick Jodi and get the right people in there running JU Kevil and it could be a great place.

Wow, I am surprised I'm not the first person to post my opinions about Leighann Jarvis. I know her PERSONALLY.

Take it from me, she's a fake, hypocritical, attention-hungry, two-faced, lying, BITCH. She says horrible things about the disabled at JU Kevil and even admits that she doesn't like being around them.

She honestly doesn't give a shit about helping anyone. She is only worried about how things appear. Sadly, she isn't fooling many people.

No one has put her in her place yet? Seriously?

Oh, and I would like to add that I think JU Kevil needs to be addressed directly about the problems. A certified letter to someone or even a few emails would be nice. Anything to help out.:)

If anyone is interested, please let me know.
