Regina Lanxter was nominated by her mother, Velma Thomas.
"I have watched Regina grow up from a baby until now," said Thomas. "She has so many hats to wear as a daughter, sister, mother and friend, and she wears them very well."
Ms. Lanxter graduated from Clarke Central High School with honors and continued her education at the University of West Georgia, but she didn't stop there. She'll be graduating in December from Piedmont College. On top of attending school twice a week, she works as a paraprofessional three times a week. She also raises two wonderful children: a daughter, A'Miyah (4) and a son, Kyan(3). She also sings at and attends the Springfield Baptist Church in Athens, Georgia.
Ms. Lanxter really loves her community. Everyone she comes in contact with, she leaves an impression on. She goes above and beyond to try to help others.
"As a mother, I'm so proud of her," said Thomas. "Seeing her accomplishments and watching her reach some of her goals and help in the community make me believe she's a LifeChanger."
