“Shine Like Kathryn” is a kindness event on Sunday, July 18th honoring Kathryn Mullins on the one year anniversary of her sudden death. Kathryn was a 20 year old Georgia Southern student and native of Lawrenceville, Georgia who died in a boating accident in Columbia, S.C. on July 18, 2020.

Kathryn’s family has chosen to declare July 18, “Shine Like Kathryn Day.”

Kathryn radiated the love of Jesus and so intentionally and contagiously greeted everyone she met with sincere kindness.

In an effort to honor her legacy they invite you to join them in spreading joy through random acts of kindness on Sunday, July 18, 2021.

They ask that you tag Shine Like Kathryn on Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #ShineLikeKathryn to inspire others and allow her family to see the impact their sweet Kathryn continues to have on others.

Kathryn was such a gifted young lady who had a heart for people and loved Jesus and the arts.

She was active in the Georgia Southern Community and Connection and Compassion Churches, college outreach programs.
