One Response to “Andrea Schruijer – Valdosta Lowndes County Development Authority – 2014-10-15”

  • Today is Thursday, May 3rd and we just left the Rotary meeting where Ryan spoke this moinrng. First of all, not only was this a small group, but it was a group of the most generous, giving, and receptive people we have had the opportunity to speak in front of. They feed us a nice breakfast, and received Ryan with open arms and support of his endeavors. It is so reassuring to know our community is made up of people that truly support the efforts of our youth! Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for being so kind to our entire family today!Candance Heavner
