Mentor Spotlight: Dwight & Kelly

Well, here I was listening to Michelle telling us what to do and what to expect from the great race at Ready for Life. My husband and I volunteered to participate as they needed more drivers.

They were going over the packet of information and answering questions. All of a sudden there was lots of yelling and doors slamming. Swearing came next, loud voices and mean words. Next this young man came storming through the room. “I am not doing this”! “It is too hot to stand outside and I am not wearing this dumb t-shirt”.

The volunteers looked at each other. No one said it out loud but we all knew what we were thinking. “Please don’t let him end up on my team”. We made our way outside. He was right, it was hot! They called the names and the car they should go to. Yup! He was on my team. (My husband got a team of very determined young ladies...ready to win).
