Sumter, SC (WLTX) --- Molly Catherine Duggan's heart is as big as Sumter County.

Not only is she a dedicated cross-country runner at Sumter High School, but she is tireless volunteer Special Olympics. In fact, Duggan spends a good portion of her day helping in Sumter's special education class. Her efforts in that arena have not gone unnoticed as she was named the South Carolina Special Olympics Youth Volunteer of the Year.

Duggan says she will attend Winthrop and major in special education. The plan is for her to compete in cross country as a walk-on which will allow her to continue competing in a sport she loves.
