What is your legacy? Her name was Dean Cornett. Very few people outside of the tiny village of Paint Lick, Ky., know who she was, but those in the village remember how she became one of President George H. W. Bush’s 1,000 points of light. A simple farmer/widow, she formed a community service organization that brought a library, GED classes, a college satellite classroom and even a doctor’s office to a small “backwater” town in rural Kentucky. Mrs. Cornett passed away about 20 years ago, but her legacy, her “Friends of Paint Lick” continues to educate and improve the lives of others.
