This is a thank you to the people who have shaped my time here in Abilene and help make me a better man now than I was when I got here. This is not an all inclusive list by any means, but this is what I have come up with thus far:
The North 10th and Treadaway Church of Christ for being my church home and family.
The First-Year Program (Dr. Mattis, Eric, Jackie and Becky) for putting up with me year after year, Kendall Massey for allowing me to be the ā€œDā€ chair. The members of Gamma Sigma Phi past and present for allowing me to be a member and to find me worthy of being an officer.

Then there are my roommates or should I say my brothers from other mothers:
Brent Couchman, Jason Webb, Clay Chesser, Dave Sessions, Cody Blair, Ryan Hise, Adam Manlove, and Doug McFarlen the group of people I got closer to than any others in my time here. I especially appreciate Cody Blair and Ryan Hise for putting up with me and sharing a room with me, which I realize at times was not easy. I love you guys and you both hold a special place in my life. Other people like Ben Grant, Eric Hise, Cal Benaglio, Matt Keathley, Mollie Mankins, Missy Mae Walters and Katey Earles have also contributed to this experience.

I may not get to tell them this very often, but let this be a record of my gratitude.
