FREEDOM AWARD PRESENTATION

Last year’s Freedom Award recipient was 10-year-old Myles Eckert from Ohio. You may remember Myles’ story from February 2014 when he found a $20 bill in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel in Ohio. Myles saw a service man in uniform and wrote him a note with the $20 bill enclosed, to pay it forward. Watch the video story below.

Each year, the Carolinas Freedom Foundation presents its prestigious Freedom Award to an individual or a group who has distinguished him/herself by serving our country and its citizens selflessly, and with total dedication to further the cause of freedom. Past winners include General Hugh Shelton, former Mayor John Belk, Senator Jesse Helms, Ross Perot, World War II veterans, the USO, the Medal of Honor Society, former POW COL Quincy Collins, portrait artist Kaziah Hancock, Purple Heart Homes, Roddey Dowd, Sr. and Dr. Charles Tsui (Charlie Two Shoes).

PATRIOTIC ART CONTEST

The breakfast is also the time CFF honors high school and middle school students winners of this annual competition.
