Steve English with E&S Fabrication 
Daniel Lewis with E&S Crane
Neal McRae with Southeast Farm Equipment 
Josh Kinard and Johnnie Winburn with Pepsi

Officer Chad Cheras with MC Sheriff Dept
Marlboro County EMS (arranged by Calvin Cassidy, but didn’t get the names of the guys)
Officer Douglas with Clio Police Department
