Hi, my name is Jake Atkins and I am so excited to be a part of the CAP Prom court. I graduated from Hauser High School in 2004. I've worked at Cummins for over 4 years now. I have an amazing husband named Aaron, and together we have 2 french bulldogs, Fannie & Faline. I am the JV volleyball coach at Columbus North High School and I coach club volleyball for HAVOC. I spend a lot of my time mentoring, guiding, and coaching youth in and around Columbus. That is why child abuse prevention is extremely important to me, and that is why I am excited to help raise money for family services. I feel as though it is important for us as a community to raise awareness about child abuse, and to hopefully spare children from the trauma and emotional torment by the prevention of child abuse. I'm thrilled that I can be a small part of this event and give back to our community.

My name is Sarah Forbes and I have worked in Bartholomew County for 5 years. My husband Joe & I along with our Blue Heeler Max love to stay busy. We spend our Summers doing anything outside, we love to camp! In my spare time you can find me driving my ‘82 Bronco & drinking white claws. Not at the same time, of course. I chose to be on the Prom Court because I think there is a high priority to continue to spread awareness in our community about child abuse and how we can prevent it.

Hi, I'm Amy Scrogham! I've lived in Columbus since 2000. I am the proudest mother of a Columbus North (soon to be Senior) Cheerleader and two rescued fur babies. I like to spend my time outdoors with friends, baking, and exercising. I have volunteered as a CASA, and I have enjoyed coaching softball in the past. I earned my Bachelor's Degree from IUPUI in 2013 in Emergency Management. I proudly represent Dave and Buster's in Greenwood as an Area Operations Manager. I accepted the nomination on prom court because it will truly be an honor to get to help my community raise money for an incredible program. I feel very strongly about protecting the vulnerable and those who do not have a voice to speak up for themselves.

Our children are our future, and they deserve the best we can give them. My only hope is I can make an impact to help our community prevent child abuse. 1 child suffering through abuse, is 1 too many. Thank you for helping me with this effort.” “Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” Kathy Calvin
