This sweet friend, Brian Buckhalter, nominated me on the sly for the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award for Service. It was a surprise to be chosen as a finalist. I along with one other student, Sarah Ball, were finalist and the student award was given to D.T. Shackleford.
It was a great day and an honor to be part of the ceremony.
A great surprise was to have two of my favorite professors in the crowd. Dr. Moore and Dr. Mac came to see me get recognized. I love these two ladies and truly their model for service to others has been one of my greatest influences.
