Bill Morris: Texas

A great example: Commitment to Helping Others

I have known and worked with John Pfannkuche over the past couple of years, and I know that he has had some very real challenges of his own in the economic downturn. I have watched him keep his chin up and continue moving forward.

His own issues have not dimmed John's willingness to do for others. This article from last Sunday's Austin America-Statesman is a real testament to John's character:

Texas community work to rebuild after wildfires



Donating his personal time and talent to rebuild a neighbor's house for free, John demonstrates the best of what we should all aspire to. I'm proud to know John Pfannkuche and proud to share this bit of his story.
