Keitha Maggard-Jent (Wildfire)

Keitha Maggard-Jent (Wildfire); RockHouse Creek at Isom; Whitesburg, Kentucky. (Keitha’s family left the mountains of Eastern Kentucky and moved north in search of opportunity.)

“The mountains drew me back home like a moth to a flame. These mountains get in your blood that's where it stays.”

“My folks originally moved to Michigan for Dad to find work. Then he got hired by Pennsylvania Railroad and they lived in Indiana and then in Ohio. I was born in Covington, KY and spent all my summers here with my grandparents on my dads side. They had to drag me back to Ohio when school started cause I wanted to be here.”
