Vail Daily letter: Thankful for SOS

Marisol M. Hovey
Vail, CO Colorado

I’m writing this letter with my sincere appreciation to Vail Resorts, which has been instrumental in supporting the SOS program. My 13-year-old son, Randy M. Hovey, has been in SOS for five years. The core values he has learned in the program has helped him become a wonderful young man who has aspirations for his future.

I also would like to thank-Arn Menconi for all his hard work in starting such a-wonderful program-for Vail Valley’s youth. I would like to include Randy’s grandparents Michele and Scott Hovey for their continued-support in getting him to and from the program and to Andrew Larsen, Randy’s sherpa, who has basically taken Randy under his wing up on the mountain, even on-non-SOS days.

I cannot tell you how much it means to me as a parent in the Vail Valley that there is a whole village supporting me to launch my son. Aren’t we fortunate to call this amazing place our home?
