The Youth Organizer

“Rocky saw many young people coming to Family Court and it troubled him. He wanted to know why and how he could help. Being a man who loved sports, he saw a way to get the youth involved. Rocky enlisted the help of family and friends Judge Caroline Branch and Mr. John Branch, Sheriff Al Skinner, and Mayor Steven May and co-workers in the Court. They sponsored baseball, basketball, football and track teams. These young people learned the skills of teamwork, self-discipline, and self-respect and most of all how to treat others. For those who did not play sports, he organized talent shows, beauty pageants.”
