I just wanted to extend my gratitude to you and the rest of the Council again for the invite to the luncheon today and for making me a member of the BBVC amongst all of you incredible men. I just feel beyond blessed and grateful. It was quite amazing hearing Ivan Castro’s story this afternoon. He really is the epitome of a true war hero and I got chills listening to his story....said Bryan Whitworth, first recipient of the BBVC's FGCU Scholarship.
