The following modules and seminars will be facilitated: (1) Health Awareness, (2) Crime Prevention, (3) Dressing for Success, (4) Dining Etiquette and Chivalry.
The idea came about by Sherwin and Sherman Riley after Gary Edwards passed away in 2011.
Gary Edwards played an instrumental role in their life as he was their little league baseball coach and school resource officer. Sherman and Sherwin learned a lot of life lessons from Gary Edwards. Sherman and Sherwin are excited to honor Gary for his legacy as well mentor and train 100 young men in Live Oak.
Sherman and Sherwin Riley have been working hard with a committee formed in Live Oak to plan the logistics for the day. They look to continue to do things in the community to help young men achieve great things. Service and giving back to the community is very prevalent in their lives.
