Reading the local newspapers, you read about individuals making a difference in the community all the time. Just last night I read a great article in the tcfreepress.com about Clifford Gardiner, the first Turks and Caicos Islander to fly an airplane in solo flight in 1970 who went on to have a 34 year career in aviation where he provided more than 300 medevac flights, many at night and in challenging conditions.
