Serving as Head Coach of the Roaring Cubs in 2011 will always hold a special place in my heart. From grandparents suggesting game time potty breaks to players picking dandelions on the sideline in lieu of fielding ground balls, there was never a dull moment. In addition to teaching children the fundamentals of baseball, it was my commitment to focus on caring and sharing too.
April 27, 2011
The Roaring Cubs phone tree (i.e., group messaging) was not only fast but also effective. It was our mode of communication when one of the most devastating tornado outbreaks in Alabama history left an unprecedented path of destruction through our state on April 27, 2011.
“We lost everything but we’re alive,” said one grateful parent. That day, our baseball team became a recovery crew. Not only did we take care of our own, we extended our reach. The aftermath of a storm will always open your eyes to who’s really there.
As a servant leader, I'm dedicated to enriching the lives of my neighbors, giving a voice to those that have been silenced, and ultimately creating a more just and caring Alabama. Sharing and caring are basic principles that too many “politicians” have forgotten. To help get them back on track, I'm running for House of Representatives, District 54, and there are multiple ways you can help:
One, vote for me, Jacqueline Gray Miller, on June 5, 2018, if you reside in the district;
Two, donate to the campaign at https://secure.actblue.com/donate/votegraymiller
Three, host a candidate meet and greet for me at your home, business or venue of your choice;
- Four, volunteer by signing up at https://votegraymiller.com/volunteer-alabama/
For me, running for House of Representatives, District 54, is an extension of caring for all my neighbors across our sweet home.
In case you’re wondering, the Roaring Cubs were 5-5 in 2011 yet our record will always pale in comparison to our hearts.
