Hello, everyone. Wow, who knew a small column giving a smile and wave to some fellow Port St. Lucie residents would have had such a welcome response?
It seems you love to hear about all the good things your neighbors are doing.
So, as the information comes in to us, I'm going to keep sharing as much as I can here. It's great to know that not only are there some wonderful people doing amazing things here in Port St. Lucie, but that you really enjoy reading about them.
So, for this week, I want to start by giving a congratulations to David Wixson, with Golf Perfect. He recently graduated from the PGA Master Professional Program. This is the highest designation that can be attained by a PGA member, and takes a minimum of eight years to complete. I applaud him for his dedication and perseverance with this.
Another Port St. Lucie resident who has worked hard at their craft is Ryan Baxter.
A former Port St. Lucie resident, he is now the senior executive research and development chef at Kraft Foodservice in Chicago.
Even though he at the top of his game, he still keeps reaching higher and attempted recently to achieve the American Culinary Federation Certified Master Chef title. This is a grueling display of all your culinary knowledge laid out in front of panel of judges. He came very close to achieving this goal, and we look forward to hearing from him when takes the test again.
And although these a single individuals, I wanted to take a moment to point out that as a community, everyone has done wonderful things to support the Honor Flight and the veterans that live here in Port St. Lucie.
From the city officials and staff helping out at a Mets game, to all the fundraisers that take place throughout the year, it is obvious that this community cares very much about its veterans.
So keep on celebrating all of your individual accomplishments. We would love to hear about them and share them with everyone.
Until next week, drive safe.
