This statement is heartbreaking for me and I, along with the Harvest Youth Board, would like the opportunity to change their perspective of this community. I feel we live in a great community and need to continue to cultivate great experiences for our friends and families."

I hope to bring my creativity, knowledge of business, and work ethic to the Harvest Youth Board to improve our community any way I can. I can’t wait to get out and get involved!"

Corey Brandon - Grants Committee

"Personally, the growth of Martinsville-Henry County (MHC) is something that has always been important to me, and this is an opportunity for me to act on it. It distresses me to hear parents in the community encourage their children to 'get out' of the area. The Harvest Youth Board is an opportunity to make our community a place where people want their children to stay and be successful."
