    The Knox County Board of DD appears to be doing a great job and what a wonderful way to celebrate the month with a kick off luncheon and awards. I know Cathy who works at Taco Bell and she so deserves the award. I have met Mr. Oster and he is very passionate about the program and has made tremendous strides over the last few years. Congratulations to the award winners.
