Santina plays an instrumental role in the success of our young people, in Appling and surrounding communities. Without her, so many young people would not have access to the mentoring and travel opportunities they enjoy today. I'm so very proud of her accomplishment of receiving this nomination. Congratulations to you Santina, well deserved.

Santina is the real deal and her heart for our youth during their most formative years is most inspiring. She serves them, leads them and teaches them through life altering experiences. Their love for each other is mutual and she has undoubtedly changed countless lives for the better.

Congratulations Santina you deserve to win the 2016 John Maxwell Award. You love the community and children you mentor in your area and surrounding area. You are well spoken and very knowledgeable when speaking in the community. Whether speaking with a friend or business leader. We love having you as a speaker I our leadership meetings. You always have something new to teach or encouragement for the group. You are not intimidated by others because you understand that the information you have to offer can fix some of their leadership problems or strengthen their own leadership, if your plans are implemented. You are a leader in the community. Congratulations again you deserve the best.
