Teen keeps family Christmas tree biz from gettin' chopped

 
This holiday season, Kaitlyn Metscher, 16, of Clark County, Washington, was set to take over her family’s Christmas tree business. She had planned to use the profits she made from selling the trees--which her family has been doing for years—to fund her college education.

 

That is, until the county shut her down. According to local laws, her business, which operates in a residential area, violated a zoning ordinance. Kaitlyn told Fox 12 News that she believes competitors tipped off the county, but she refused to let nay-saying officials get her down. Instead, she cracked open the county books and checked out the laws for herself. Impressed by her fortitude, the county commissioners approved an emergency ordinance that will allow the business to stay open.

 

Talk about determination! Kaitlyn dreams of being a lawyer, and it looks to us that she’s well on her way. Check out a video interview with this chica here.
