Public dollars should go to public education

Let me express my appreciation to the Technical College of the Lowcountry Area Commission, led by retired Gen. Art Brown Jr., William Small Jr. and administration and Tom Leitzel, immediate past president of TCL, for naming me the 2013 Presidential Medallion recipient. I accepted this honor on behalf of those who helped fashion my basic values and continuing development, including my late parents, other family members, former teachers, those whom I have been privileged to work with in my fields of employment, volunteer and elective service.
