Nelson McCoy is one of the most important people in my life. His teachings and life lessons have really made an extreme impact on me. He’s an inspiration, I respect him as a father or brother I never had. Mr. McCoy introduced me to thoughts about attending college and furthering my education and leadership opportunities. Despite of the frustrations and all of the harsh criticism, I truly appreciate everything this man has done for me. I graduated with many titles to my name and I am currently a sophomore at the great Bethune Cookman University. I never imagined that I would be where I am today and Mr. McCoy is a huge cause of my well-being today.
