Since 1950, The Jaycee Creed has united Junior Chamber members from around the world. Those 65 words, penned by Ohio Jaycee C. William Brownfield, continue to convey the standards for which our organizations aspire. For some, The Creed serves as a basis for bonding with fellow members, for some it was something that brought a bit of anxiety when they had to first lead it at a local meeting, and for some it was transformational and has guided them throughout their life. It is that spirit of transformation that I hope to spotlight this year. That spirit displayed by those, like Bill Brownfield before us, who are Living The Creed!

For his efforts of saving the 21 innocent people, Jim was recognized as a hero by the local mayor, the governor of Illinois and was one of 8 individuals who was awarded the Carnegie Medal, which is given to someone from the US and Canada who risks their life while saving or attempting to save the lives of others.
