COMMENTS:

“This young man has not only achieved a great deal by any measure, but did it by overcoming significant difficulties in his life – which I, for one at least, was not at all aware of in talking with him at our meetings.  I’m gratified that the Rose has been a part of his life.”  – Darryl Wold, member, Rose Institute Board of Governors
