Sparky, who is home-schooled, got involved with the campaign in January after seeing Bill Clinton campaign for his wife in Cleveland. She and her mom, Debbie Irvine, arrived two hours before the doors opened and it earned them third-row seats in front of the podium. "It felt like he was talking to me, like I was the only person in the room," Sparky said.
Afterward, she took a flier and volunteered. She answered phones and typed. And then one day the person who mapped door-to-door routes for canvassers was busy.
Sparky stepped up and soon the teen was working 12-hour days plotting courses for hundreds of volunteers to knock on thousands of doors in northern Ohio.
