Kind Words from a Contributor
"...thank you for the work you do.
Both Brendan and I have always been proponents of education. Dr. Smith said it best tonight. We have all made it with help from others and we know the importance of giving back.
If I can ever be of assistance to you or the Mountain Home student community please don't hesitate to ask."
Kind regards, Losurdo (Brian)
Mollie Morgan: "Encourages us all to work a little harder."
