Giving Joe Saffold his flowers is an idea I support, completely. Mr. Saffold has been a diligent advocate of student success for over 20 years. His tenacity when working with students, whether it is academically, athletically or personally is unmatched. He gives of himself and stands as a strong model for students, as he always demonstrates a powerful work ethic, a positive attitude and approaches every problem with a solution mindset. His energy is magnetic and dedication to the community has never wavered. He believes in the people he works with and he teaches them to believe in himself. I have watched him motivate people from ages 5 to 50. He is always consistent in his messaging-he will always help if he can. Congratulations on this recognition! Nobody deserves it more!
