"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way."
In 1923, Mary Breckinridge (who had been a nurse in WWI) learned about the nonexistent medical facilities in Appalachian Kentucky, and founded the Frontier Nursing Service -- a group of women who traveled by horseback to isolated mountain residents to provide medical care.
The inspiring life of Mary Breckinridge leads us to discover that character may be built by enduring hardship and focusing on helping others. The events of Mary’s life as a nurse in the backwoods of the Kentucky mountains will challenge others today.*
