As a professional in an industry responsible for shaping the places we live, work, shop, play, and pray in, it is my responsibility to advocate for the industry in general and my profession specifically. It is my responsibility to help find, inspire, and guide those that will contribute to the betterment of our industry and communities.  This is a great industry to have a career in, and I want to do my part to be sure that kids in disadvantaged areas understand that this option is there for them.
