Sydnee Floyd
Sydnee Floyd Since she was four, Sydnee has volunteered supporting multiple causes. As an eighth-grader, Sydnee served as president of the student council and led her middle school in collecting around 10,000 toiletries, funds earmarked to purchase over 90,000 pounds of food, and about $2,500. That same year at 13 years old, she established Jumbled Dreams Changing Lives, a non-profit organization. Through the organization, Sydnee identifies various volunteer opportunities then recruits young people to showcase how they can help change lives in the hope that they will continue those efforts throughout their lives. Jumbled Dreams is unique because it challenges young people to make a difference for numerous causes. Upon enrolling in high school, Sydnee also started Echoes of Hope, a club to create awareness among her fellow students of the needs of people in our area. Sydnee’s personal activities in the past year include partnering with 15 different small organizations to shine a spotlight on their causes. These efforts include working with Operation Homefront to collect school supplies for children who have a parent in active military duty, working with United Way to organize and direct the Great Backpack Giveaway for 2,400 backpacks and even being featured in a Dierks Bentley music video. Her leadership has been showcased this year by organizing over 100 volunteers to support numerous efforts to help hunger and homelessness in Middle Tennessee. Sydnee is making a difference in her school and her community. She feels it is important to spread love and show others the need to make a difference. Her dream is for Jumbled Dreams to continue for many, many years.
