WHY I DO WHAT I DO
I do what I do for multiple reasons; Mainly though, because it was done for me! I often say that I was the first youth in Rise Up! There is a sense of satisfaction in helping others and providing opportunities for others to invest in the lives of others. One of the most thrilling things is to watch children like Julian Story grow from boys into young men with amazing potential. In this picture, Julian and I are sharing a stage when he was six years old. He was reading from his notes about going to college one day. The picture on the right is Julian today, getting ready to attend University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I expect Julian will do great things! He is a hard worker and wise beyond most of his peers. This is why I do what I do!
