Ne'riah Miller named the face of the 'Let the Kids Grow' foundation

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - There's a new face for the "Let the Kids Grow Foundation."

The non-profit organization held a rally this afternoon at the 10th Street YMCA in Louisville to make the announcement.

It chose Ne'riah Miller as the face of the foundation.

The 16-month old was shot and killed back in August.

In the picture, you can see the little girl holding a phone under the words "The Communicator."

"Even though you couldn't understand what she was saying, you could understand," said Cierra Twyman, Ne'riah's mother. "It's a lot of meaning to baby Ne'Riah. Her name means lamplight of God, so it's a lot of meaning to her name."

The event was also a fall festival for kids, featuring a rally for the upcoming youth basketball season.
