Mayor with J.A.M.P.

jamp_mayor25Deanna,
I had the best time visiting with your students a few weeks back. The young people in your class are amazingly talented and I know that their musical training will undoubtedly help them with all of their other educational endeavors. It was so wonderful to see such a diverse group of the children of our community come together in harmony and with one voice. Thanks so much for inviting me and I look forward to having the opportunity to come for another visit in the future!

Helping Hands

Giving is our mission. Helping is our service. Growing up "Brown" we learned the importance of never forgetting those who are less fortunate. There is always room to help somone thru service.After a tornado storm hit Beech Island, SC, where Mr. Brown resided for more than 30 years, in April of 2009 people in the area were devastated. The storm demolished homes and businesses. Even the local fire department was destroyed. The Brown Family Foundation donated bedding, bath and kitchen items to help the families effected start rebuilding their lives back.
