“Thank you so very much for the opportunity to be recognized as an ACE recipient. I feel very honored to be a part of this group. I really liked the chance to be in the newspaper and thus shared it with extended family outside South Carolina. That night was extremely special. Mr. Code’s message was inspirational and I believe like him that while we are not “masters of our souls” we do make choices that either enhance or affect our character. I feel challenged to continue to live up to the ideals of this award. Of course I was also blown away by the goodie bag. The Kindle, shoes, watch, Southern Tide, and other things were way better than Christmas.”
