You gave and gave and gave even when I wasn’t deserving…

When I was a senior in high school and didn’t have a mentor an incredible woman came along side me and mentored me, poured into me and also supported me financially so I could go to college. She had no reason to do this. I was the lucky one who got her as my advisor and overseer when I was in the Miss Matanuska Valley Pageant and then Miss Alaska. We became friends and more than that. Today I was thinking of her and all she meant to me at the time I didn’t have a lot of direction. I spent many hours at her home, many dinners, and many hours of Motherly training on how to become someone who could contribute to her community. She isn’t a household name, but a name that meant, means the world to me 37 years later. Jackie Jackie McCartney Whipple you made a HUGE difference in my life which gave me the example and the desire to make a difference in others.
