They often say that is never too late in life. That is certainly true of our veterans that have given their lives for our freedoms. Ken Goodrich respects, admires, and appreciates all that the veterans have done for us. Because of this, Ken Goodrich of Goettl Air Conditioning, is rewarding a veteran with $1,000 to kick start his college career. It will go to Nick Hughes of the College of Southern Nevada. It can be hard for veterans to return to the real world after being in the war world. It can be a tough period and many suffer through depression, confusion, and uneasiness.
However, thanks to Ken Goodrich, Nick Hughes can pursue a college career and achieve all of his dreams. He has the whole world in front of him. Sometimes all we need is a little help and a little start to get us on our way. After all, this is a man that has given us his all in terms of our country. Without him, we wouldn’t have the freedoms that we enjoy today. This is a great gesture by Ken Goodrich and shows what kind of man he is and how thoughtful, kind, and considerate he is. Frankly, we need more people like him in our world.
As far as Ken Hughes, he is excited for what the future holds as he will be getting his degree in two weeks and graduating. This is such a wonderful story in a world that is filled with negativity, gossip, and cynicism. Stories like this bring a tear to my eye. With that degree under his belt, anything is possible for his future. As Ken Goodrich Goettl says, people coming from the war often make great employees. They have learned about discipline, putting themselves out there, and how to work as a team.
