We are fortunate to have one of the most giving communities you could live in. People here give of their time and other resources on a regular basis. In the past, I had fun coaching, being on a few boards, and even serving as mayor of small-town Kershaw, SC. Today, Justice4Kids, keeping our community informed, and recognizing people that make a difference in our community is my focus.

Most children anxiously count down the days until the weekend arrives. The weekend means no school, watching cartoons on Saturday morning, and the promise of fun time spent with family and friends.
