Optimist Club Honors Youth

Youth Appreciation Banquet, Charleston, S.C.
The West Ashley Optimist Club held their annual Youth Appreciation Banquet last night. I am always pleased to have the chance to nominate one of my student volunteers for recognition.

My honoree is the gal on the far right. Not only did she volunteer all summer but after taking a CPR class went home and recognized that her own father was having a stroke and kicked into action to get him prompt treatment. I was proud as punch. We have some amazing young people in the lowcountry. Congratulations!

A good portrait, Joan!

We have those clubs here... but actually knowing where they meet is another matter entirely.

Congratulations to you, Joan, for teaching that young girl what to do. Bravo!
