Scott Goodson learned about Reef Balls from his science teacher, Dennis Knabb. Dennis teaches students how to build LoPro sized Reef Balls at Parkville Middle School in Baltimore County. Two years later, Scott decided to build Reef Balls as a Scout project. Following a hands-on demonstration lesson, he constructed 6 Reef Balls. His mother, Kathy, took the picture of Scott and his dad with the Reef Ball in the forground and created a christmas card that included the following insert:

"This is what God asks of you, only this, to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God."

Kathy has survived cancer for six years and once again is undergoing therapy. I found out about this while having tea and cookies in her kitchen on the day a friend and I went to pick up the completed Reef Balls. Only then did I notice her wig. Her attitude was remarkable. She spoke in positive terms with much enthusiam. Because of my involvement with the Reef Ball project, I have had the opportunity to meet many truly caring persons, but Kathy tops the list. I cried when I read her card.
