Today’s highlighted RSVP volunteer is Ms. Emma Tyler. Ms. Tyler is 75 years young. She likes to stay busy and loves helping people. She has been a RSVP Volunteer since 2005 and has held 6 jobs at 5 workstations including Baptist Health Hardin and Mission Hope for Kids in Elizabethtown. She has also served on the RSVP Advisory Council since 2014 and is a Senior Companion to a very special 96-year-old lady that she loves dearly.

Emma has 2 sons and 1 daughter. She also has 7 other “kids” that call her mom. She has 7 grandchildren and “too many others to count” that call her Grandma Emma. She is active in her church, enjoys cross stitching and reading. Emma says that helping others keeps her strong in mind, body and spirit. She hopes that programs such as RSVP and SCP will be around when she needs them.
