Sometimes you find strong leadership right under your nose. My sister-in-law, Charlotte, has been leading for a long time. She is incredibly civic minded and has a heart for education among other things. She has been leading an uphill battle to begin a charter school in her city.
One of my heroes, Jim Odom, was presented with the Citizen of the Year award by our local Chamber of Commerce recently. This comes as no surprise to me. This man has met with Presidents, led huge projects for NASA including being an integral part of saving the Hubble telescope when it was on the brink of destruction several years ago.
