Sign lady signs off
For the better part of two decades, Karen Hanson used plastic letters and a light-up sign as her own personal ministry to the world. Or at least the part of it that drove on Akin Road.
For 17 years, it was Hanson’s job to manage the sign in front of Bible Baptist Church. It’s a job she viewed as her own personal form of outreach to the community. A chance to make people laugh, make them smile or make them think as they rolled past at 45 miles per hour.
