Our fellow Rotarian Milon McDaniel was honored by Advocates Against Family Violence with a "MITT" (Men In the Top Tier) Award.  This award honored 8 men from different service clubs and organizations from around our area.  Our club submitted Milon's name and he was honored during a special celebration of these men.  Milon has made a difference in the lives of children and families through his work as a past principal of Canyon Springs Alternative School in Caldwell where he worked with "at risk" students, which included single mothers and others, that needed an alternative school environment to be able to succeed and graduate with a standard high school diploma. He was awarded a "Volunteer of the Year" from The American Red Cross for his service during Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters.  He started our Rotary Club's "First Book" program for 2nd graders which reaches about 1,400 2nd graders in 18 elementary schools in our area and it has been ongoing now for several years.  In the past, he has been awarded a personal "Friend of Education" award and had accepted a "Friend of Education" award for our club's efforts in literacy in our schools. According to Kim Ivacek, Director and fellow Rotarian, Milon hits a "home run" for families in our community and country.
