Because of the work Coffee County Family Services (CCFS) offers to local families, Anthony Townsend is ready to attend Troy University this fall. And he’ll be able to work on class assignments easier with a laptop computer donated to him by Navigator Development Group Inc.
Community support is essential in helping the non-profit service center assist family needs and promote self-sufficiency. So when Townsend, a recent graduate of Enterprise High School, decided to attend Troy University in the fall, CCFS sought to assist him with a few things for college, such as a laptop.
As a member of the CCFS board, Milton Shipman discussed the needs with Navigator Senior Vice President Rob Hutson who knew Navigator’s owner Keith Gay would want to help.
Townsend is leaning toward majoring in either criminal justice or business at Troy before continuing his studies and purse a law degree. “I feel thankful,” he said. “I am blessed with a good support group through my church family and my extended family.”
When presenting him with the computer, Hutson reminded Townsend of the old saying that knowledge is power. “An education provides growth of knowledge and power that will benefit you in your life,” he said. “I know you will persevere …just remember, don’t ever give up.”
The Coffee County Family Services Center was created in 1998 to work with families to assist them with resources that impact health, education and stability. Many organizations, clubs, churches and individuals assist the center in maintaining its mission.
Navigator is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. It has been providing hometown support to Fort Rucker for 20 years as a solutions provider across the Aviation, Training and Technology domains.
