International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

I am very thankful to the women in my life; past and present. I am also very thankful for the positive role models in our community for my daughter, Sophia, to admire- first and foremost my wife, Holly, a middle school math teacher, mentor, and awesome mother and wife!

International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people.

I’ve been lucky to have positive female role models in my life. I want to thank all the women in our community who are mentoring others and leading by example.

Being positive role models by supporting local youth and students is a very important mission of our family. International Women’s Day is a holiday to remind both boys and girls to treat each other with respect and equally. That is how I want my son and daughter to treat others and how I want others to treat my children.
