Terry Dozier was telling me about his new job last Saturday.
We were at the West Metro Rotary Club’s annual Lexington County (SC) Chili Cookoff. Terry was one of our judges. My son Mark and I were competing for the third year.
Terry, a former star basketball player at the University of South Carolina and for the NBA Charlotte Hornets, has joined the Columbia (SC) Recreation Department. Terry said he is working with young people to show them options to gang life.
“I’m excited every morning about going to work,” Terry said. “I can’t believe they’re paying me to do this.”
What a wonderful way to live. Terry is having fun and making a difference in the lives of young people.
No telling how many will live successful lives instead of becoming career criminals.
Whatever you’e doing in your life, I hope you feel the way Terry and I feel.
Every morning is a great new experience. Get out there and make a difference in someone’s life. You’ll be making a difference in your own, too.
