Jack Roper

Well, Jack Roper here in Greenwood at the airport.

Bo Bowman, Award Recipient

Yes you are.

Jack

We are. There are airplanes here, it was a dead giveaway, wasn't it? Bo Bowman is with us, and Bo we've heard all about you, you know every month we give away an award, our Caring for the Carolinas Award for people that donate their time to help other people. These are all friends of yours, and some of these are people that you personally have helped through a thing called Angel Flight

Bo Bowman, Award Recipient

Angel Flight and our organization is called Angel Flight Soars, Inc.

Brenda White, Patient

Bo has flown me with Angel Flight to Mississippi to get the treatment that I needed, and If I wouldn't have been able to get there by Angel Flight, it kind of would have been life threatening.

Kate Estes, Mother of Patient

He smoothed the way, he helped arrange the right kind of plane that could accommodate Noah's needs.

Pastor Nathan Gragg, Immanuel Lutheran Church

We support Bo in a lot of the work he does through Angel Flight, but I also get to see some of the other things Bo does here in the community. Bo is one of the leaders of our Sunday Soup Kitchen. Every Sunday we serve between 150 and 200 meals to people in the community for free. Bo also drives our church van to go around and pick up children in the community to come and be involved.

Brenda White, Patient

There's nothing he wouldn't do for anybody.

Noah Estes, Patient

He's great.

Kate Estes, Mother of Patient

He's great.

Pastor Nathan Gragg, Immanuel Lutheran Church

He's said it many times before that at this point of his life he just wants to serve.

Bo Bowman, Award Recipient

And I love flying. Flying's my real passion, but when I can combine my passion with helping others that need me to do what I'm doing for them, it really doesn't get any better than that.

Jack

And I trust you've got a mantelpiece. You can't put this on the front of the plane, you have to secure it on a mantelpiece. Here's our Caring for the Carolinas Award for the month of March, Mr. Bo Bowman of Greenwood, thanks for all you do.
