Gregory C.

Each year, J.U.G.S. (Justice, Unity, Generosity, and Service) recognizes individuals in the corporate, business, political, community, educational and religious realms who share the organization’s mission of helping today’s youth prepare for a better tomorrow.

That young people can learn from my experience and example is an added blessing that motivates me to continue to strive for excellence.”
