Shocked Response

Like any other 5-years-olds would, Artis Rollins' daughters marveled at all the presents beneath their Christmas tree, then immediately began to anticipate unwrapping each package. The identical twins’ father, meanwhile, was still overjoyed about the gift he and his girls had just opened—the house where that tree now stands. 

Rollins and his daughters are the recipients of the most recent house remodeled through Jackson County’s innovative Constructing Futures program. Rollins’ jaw dropped when County Executive Mike Sanders made the official announcement during a special ceremony this morning at the Marlborough Community Center in Kansas City. 

“First of all, I want to give thanks to God,” said Rollins. “This was shocking. I had no idea. I surely appreciate all the hard work and effort of everyone involved. I am so, so, so grateful.”
