u start somewhere, and you dream big, and sometimes you have to dream even bigger. But we want to do a lot of great things in the community as far as sports fields, recreational centers, all sorts of after-school programs.”

→One of the first big projects was providing funds for a new weight room at Southeast High School. What has it been like to see projects like that come together?

"It’s been awesome. We put in (a weight room) at Douglass. The next thing you know, they win state (in football). It’s been really cool to see that type of stuff happening and kids being able to benefit from stuff like that.”
