     Congratulations Elroy!!

    I’m literally clapping my hands right about now!

    I knew you from our schooldays, and we trained together on the Cayman Islands National Track & Field Team as well.

    From personal experience I would vouch for you any day and tell anyone that Mr. Bryan is one solid guy.

    So glad to see an ‘ordinary’, down-to-earth, selfless, ambitious yet humble individual such as yourself win this award.

    The YCLA has truly done itself a huge favor with this year’s selection.

    All the best to you in the future – God Bless!!

    (Actually, in my opinion, the majority of the candidates this year were very much well-deserving of recognition as well.)
