Hudgins said. “I know my Daddy constantly instilled in me, if you get an education, no one can take it from you. That’s the thing you’ll take to your grave. But anything else, someone can take. But an education is going to stick with you forever, and it’s going to take you places.” (Submitted on August 25, 2017, by J. J. Prats of Powell, Ohio.)
