Before #T6B had a logo, a website, or a plan, we looked for established community members that would take the leap and support and foster our fledgling idea. The first person we turned to was Gold Star Mother Tracy Miller, and she became our first advisory board member. Tracy has helped us tremendously by linking us into various networks, fundraising, and advising. We are grateful to have such a pillar of the community to support our mission. Tracy was recently awarded the President’s Award for Distinguished Service to Towson University, which is among her many, many accomplishments. Thank you for your service, Tracy!
