BENTON – In this week’s Unsung Hero, a Benton woman spends her days volunteering. Shannon Carr has been recognized for her generosity several times in the community.

Shannon has been helping with the cub scouts for about four years, planning activities for more than 25-boys.

The mother of four has been “filling a need” most of her life. She’s also organizer for her church’s free clothing store.

But it doesn’t stop there, Shannon is the fill in van driver for her church, cooks for Vacation Bible School, and organizes the church’s Christmas toy drive all while working a full-time job.
