For One Ogallala Student, Coffee is Providing More Than Just a Rush
February 16, 2023
Nevaeh Byers is a 14-year-old eighth grader at Ogallala Middle School and a member of the Student Council. Active in her community, she volunteers for many local events and activities in addition to dancing, singing, and being with her friends and family. In her free time, she often babysits for one of her many regular customers. Nevaeh grew up in the coffee shop that her grandma owned and became very adept at making specialty coffees, so when it came time to raise funds for her 8th-grade trip to Washington D.C., it was easily decided that there would be no better way than to restart her aunt's Coffee Cart. Once obtaining the cart and coffee machine, they secured their food permit, and came up with a unique name, Always Kaffeinated. Her first event was a football game at the Ogallala High School, and since then has served many a happy customer at various craft shows and area basketball games. On Christmas Day, she decided to spread some Holiday Cheer and provided free delivery in town.
Nevaeh is excited to go to Washington D.C. with her friends where she will be able to see Arlington National Cemetery, the Lincoln Memorial, The White House, and many other important parts of the country's history and present. Her trip will be at the end of May and will last for 1 week.
What's the plan after she hits her goal? She plans to continue doing fund-raising for various causes until her brother, Lucas, starts raising money for his own trip next year.
