Mr. Carlyle is very proud to award a Special Ribbon to DeGraaf. For the past 5-6 years, DeGraaf has grown her hair, cut it, and donated it to the Locks of Love organization. This group uses donated hair to make wigs for young cancer patients. Awesome DeGraaf!!

Mr. Carlyle surprised a few Tri-City Young Marines. He snuck a message into his monthly newsletter, the first 4 Young Marines to respond would receive a gift. Only 3 responded, Bowman, Haeg and DeGraaf. Remember - reading those newsletters can be very valuable!!
