Kelly Copas’ time in the military gave him the desire to serve his community in retirement.
He was born in Monroe County and joined the U.S. Army when he was 18. He spent 21 years in the service.
Now at 41, Copas is the president of the North Hardin Lions Club.
He uses his work with the Lions Club as a way to continue to give back to the community after his military career.
“I looked at my military services as if I was giving back and helping others that weren’t able to serve,” he said.
