Dear Editor

Congratulations on an outstanding interview with President of the Community Daniel Gibbs. He has had many tirelessly since Irma struck, and his skills and leadership have been much appreciated.
What do you know, and what does it mean? President Gibbs was doing a few hours before Irma struck. My wife and I were at the shelter in the Savannah and were helped by the President of the United States. to the Savannah shelter.
While they were more or less hurricane preparations, they were a few days before the beginning of the term.
