We too had a wonderful Oscar worthy event at our Knight of Awards Annual Banquet celebrating our many award recipients. Despite the cold weather, we heard many heartwarming remarks about WakeMed's Andrews Conference Center, our Silent Auction, and our Awards presentation. Thank you to Josh Francis, Immediate Past President, for your leadership making 2014 a great year for us. We look forward to continued growth and excellence in 2015.
A special thank you to Dave Doeren for his heartfelt speech on how he came to be head coach and his vision for our young Wolfpack players.
