I wish to nominate Lora Strickland of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers of Gainesville. She works with schoosl and colleges to raise awareness about drinking and driving and underage drinking. She has been doing this for four years as a volunteer and she puts all her time into saving others from drinking and driving. She says "If I can make a difference in just one person's life, I did my job." She also raises seven kids, ages 3 to 12. She took them all in to keep them together. She is our angel and we love to see her smile for all she does.
