Rex Masters has been a volunteer at Crossroads since 2003. He came to us through his wife Sheila, who in October 2003 came to our open house and thought this would be a good place for her then boy friend Rex to do something useful. Sure enough about a week later she showed up with a tough looking guy in tow who wasn’t all that crazy about this volunteering idea. But he humored us and agreed to give it a try. To make a long story short, the man is still with us and loves it. He claims that it was through Crossroads that he gave up his bad habits of doing drugs and other stuff one shouldn’t do. He went back to school, graduated in psychology and is yet on to another degree into the non- profit world for a MACL (masters in arts of community leadership). We are truly happy to have him around and value his friend ship. Thanks, Rex, you are a great chap.
