    By MARK BOWES, The Richmond Times-Dispatch RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — To those who know her, Susan Revere exemplifies one of the key ingredients of doing things for others: working behind the scenes and being an instrument of a good cause. Many area residents may be familiar with the nonprofit organization she leads, RampsRVA, which is short for Ramp Access Made Possible by Students in Richmond, Va. But few people know about the tremendous impact that Revere’s colleagues say she’s made through her exceptional organizational and planning skills that’s led to the construction of 440 wheelchair ramps, free of charge, for residents in the region who have disabilities and are economically disadvantaged. And in the process, she’s accomplished another important goal: empowering young, able-bodied high school and college students who volunteer their time to help construct the ramps. They are introduced to parts of the Richmond area they’ve likely never seen, and develop connections to less fortunate residents who live very different lives. Many of her colleagues, former student volunteers and ramp recipients describe her variously as “incredibly humble,” empathetic, friendly,...
