Young Professionals

There is always talk about letting the younger generation get in position to be leaders in the community, and in some regards that makes sense, but you need committed and intelligent people who are not bitter, ignorant and selfish.

I would like to think that the younger generation would be respectful, hard workers, intelligent and not name callers and mudslingers. There are people that I come in contact with on a daily basis that meet that criteria and I am so proud of them. People like Joyce Tapley at The Martin Luther King Clinic and Dr. Terry Flowers at St. Phillips School. These two young professionals along with their staffs and board of directors announced on Wednesday that their organizations would be getting 1.5 million dollars (combined) in grants from the Crystal Charity Ball.

Good work young professionals.
