I have been a member of EMYS for the past four years. All of my ministry has been in Madison and I have a deep love for the folks of the county. I joined the board of this organization because of its contribution to our county and communities by helping our youth complete their education. Today, more than ever, it is critical our youth have at least a high school education in order to succeed. EMYS has assisted a number of students over the years to complete their education. I feel this not only an economic but also a moral responsibility for each of us to contribute to their success.
