Recognizing The Recognizer

Recognition is something that we all appreciate as for many it gives us fuel to continue with our mission. In fact, if you read the news articles today you will hear many of the same names over and over. Some folks love the limelight while others spend their time behind the scenes totally satisfied with producing the limelight platforms. Often those behind the scene folks never get recognized for their work. But, people go to work every day and never get recognized for the behind the scenes essential duties that they perform. That’s life…

In reading the paper today, my thoughts were impacted because of another article about a student athlete. It reminded me about the many times that my son has been written about with his student athletic successes. I can recall time and time again where student athletes have been recognized in a positive light in this newspaper publication. I can recall where folks in the working world have been recognized for their successes. I can recall where achievements have been publicized by individuals in all walks of life when reading one particular reporter’s articles.

Yes my thoughts were that this guy is always recognizing our kids, our work achievers, our leaders etc., but does anyone ever recognize him? He chose his career and it’s not the limelight career. But that should not stop us from recognizing and thanking Mr. Wayne Howard for the continued work he puts in to build up this community. Though life, health problems and just issues of life, he somehow continues to be there writing positive articles in a good light for this community.

Can someone please recognize him… Yes, today there was another article about a kids success in our community this week. Who knows how the articles he writes about our youth will impact them later when they get older. I think the encouragement and rewards for their efforts by having a nice publication should give them more fuel to pursue, continue persevere ahead in life in a positive light. Again, recognition is a great fuel for many.

In case you haven’t figured out who I’m referencing yet. It is Mr. Wayne Howard. Thanks Wayne for building up our youth! For covering our counties happenings and working without recognition.

This article is about you and you need to be recognized. Great job Wayne and as a parent I appreciate your work.
