Respect builds bridges.
Respect is the fabric that binds us together.
Respect is good for families, schools, business, churches . . . for all relationships.
Respectfulness looks for the highest and best in others, opening the way for greater appreciation and positive relationships.
"The initiative fits perfectly into the foundation's goal of supporting things that make the community better. We can't do it without respect."

"It's effortless to be an advocate for something that means as much as respect does. My hope is that the respect you give is contagious."
Caroline Moser ( Davie Chamber of Commerce Executive President)
"Respect is so important to every aspect of our lives, whether it is our personal relationships or business interactions. By shining a spotlight on respect, the DRI reminds us all that we are better people and a better community when we are respectful to one another."
Carolyn McManamy (of the Davie County Chamber of Commerce)
"Davie County is the perfect size to have this experiment (the Davie Respect Initiative) in that we will experience the results immediately as more respect is practiced. We don’t have to agree, but we can always be respectful towards one another.”
Terry Bralley (President Davie Co. Economic Development Commission)
