My Awards from Governors

There is a wonderful saying that I guess describes how I feel about Making Things Happen, "There are three types of people: 1.Those that make it happen; 2.Those who watch things happen; 3.Those that tell what happen." My work with Stepfamily Day reinforces the notion that determined individuals still have power, even as governments become more massive and systems more convoluted. I have challenged the gatekeepers of righteousness to recognize the pervasiveness and difficulties of the stepfamilies in their midst.


Governor Jim Hodges of South Carolina: Rachel and I are pleased to learn of your work to bring support and recongnition to the stepfamilies and children of our nation. Our families are our most valuable asset and we must do all that we can to ensure that their future is bright. Your efforts to promote public awareness of the importance of unity between families, schools, and communities are to be commended. Your volunteerism benefits not only your community, but the entire nation by inspiring others to become involved in their own communitites. Not only have you worked to imporve the lives of the less fortunate in Jonesboro, you have also dedicated yourself to imporving the lives of our young people by encouraging them and their families to set high personal and academic standards. Your selflessness and generosity serve as an inspiration as wee seek to make a difference in the lives of other. Please accept my best wishes for continued success. Please let me know if I can ever be of help to you in any way.(1999)
