Helping others.

She came by it honestly as a child, in the halls of her father’s ministry and civic outreach center, learning the importance of a life lived in the service of others.

Be humble, she was told.

Be willing.

And by all means, be available.

So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Kasey Norris, senior setter at Wayne Christian, took those lessons and used them to foster volleyball’s greater good on Patetown Road.

Between the lines, No. 7 is a Type-A captain whose fundamentals, communication and decision-making under rapid-fire duress have made her a likely candidate for All-CPIC recognition at season’s end.

But it’s about much more than that.

It’s about more than statistics, even though her 767 assists this fall certainly qualify as impressive.

It’s about her coach, the one has guided her since middle school, and her teammates, whose success she admits matters more than her own. It’s life in the service of others, as its always been, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Congratulations, Kasey.
