Why We Love This Place Wednesdays: Kendall Hubbard

By Terra Avilla

I know you have all heard the expression good things come in small packages. You know, like dynamite, diamonds, Daffodils, etc. This is most definitely true when it comes to this week’s beautiful feature, Kendall Hubbard.

Writing this article on sweet Kendall really makes me realize how long I have lived in Susanville. I met that little firework when she was in the 8th grade and she is now almost twenty-one years old. She is perhaps one of the youngest people I have featured in my weekly article, but when you encompass so much zeal and passion for life, age really is not a factor.

If you have eaten at Frosty Mill over the past four or five years, I guarantee you know my Kendall. The petite face at the front desk with a larger than life personality and an inner glow that lights up the entire restaurant.

Kendall was born and raised in Susanville, and is an exemplary model of who I want my daughters to be when they grow up. Heck, she is kind of who I want to be when I grow up: independent, strong willed, passionate, smart and caring.

As my neighbor, I have been privileged to get a firsthand look at this beautiful young lady growing up. In that time, I have seen on the cheerleading team, run for Ms. Lassen County’s Court, be an advocate for others who have Diabetes for fair insulin costs. Kendall also is a great help in taking care of her beautiful niece and nephews.

My daughter was lucky enough to snag an invitation to her niece’s birthday party, where Ms. Kendall had planned an elaborate tea party for her niece. You don’t plan that amount of detail for a child’s party unless you really are committed to bringing happiness to a child.

Ms. Kendall is also my neighbor and I can attest that seeing her shining smile every day really brightens up my day. She is also so respectful and so kind to my children. She (and her parents) are great neighbors and add to the small town feel that I have come to love.

In speaking with her, although she is only twenty years old, it’s obvious she is very mature for her age, and a true humanitarian. Kendall always offers to help in whichever way she can, recently being a princess for me in last year’s Holiday with A Hero program.

I ambushed her in her driveway, and told her she just ‘had to dedicate her Saturday morning” to little kids in our county. She sighed, smiled and said “of course.” Not only did she look like a beautiful princess, but she encompassed all that royalty should be. Kind, just, giving, sweet, sincere, etc.

The joy of living in our community is how intertwined our lives become with our other community members. I love watching this little butterfly grow and spread her wings and I am so excited for what the future holds for her. From the adorable little 8th grader to the stunning, smart young woman she is today, Kendall is always one of the reasons I love the place we live.
