SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Over 600 people attended the 2019 Night of Champions to recognize people with different abilities who excel in our community.

DIRTT Environmental Solutions. Maynor is responsible for everything from assembling walls to assisting freight partners, in addition to training and assessing.
Tybee Island YMCA. From the day Holt was hired, the YMCA has created a stronger team and community due to Holt’s enthusiasm and drive.
