"One of the best decisions I ever made was joining CRD. When I began my career as the development officer for Panola College in 2001, I had no experience in fundraising. I had a lot of questions, and when I needed help the leadership and members of this organization were more than happy to provide it. Their willingness to take time to help someone they had never met still amazes me to this day, and that is why I am proud to be a member of the CRD."
