The rate of autism has increased dramatically and that need is what continues to drive us to do more, build more and want more for our families with autism. I don't know what the next fifteen years will bring but I'm excited to be a part of it,” said Dantzler.

Thank you to Dan Huberty, Commissioner Jack Cagle and my board of directors for honoring me, however it is the families with autism who should be honored.”
