What Pike County says about Youth First

The work you and Youth First are doing is truly saving lives. I am the current president of the School Board of Education here in Pike County, and in my years on the board I have seen many good causes come across my desk. Youth First is one that I am very proud to sponsor and very excited to see in the schools and community. I am enclosing my personal contribution to this very worthy program.
