 Former Falcon helps kick off campaign
posted 8 years ago

As an Atlanta Falcons linebacker, Mike Reid learned the importance of making an impact. But since his retirement, Reid said he prefers to do so by extending a helping hand to area youth instead of dealing out bone-crushing hits. Reid relayed his desire for community involvement during the United Way of Paulding County’s official kickoff last week. “For me community involvement is giving or going out of your way to help someone else and not wondering what you are going to get on the back end,” he said. “It’s being involved in something bigger than you.” Reid said he was inspired to reach out to young people because of a childhood mentor who took the time to do the same for him. “When I was in high school my coach, Coach Allen, saw me just sitting around thinking and he took the time to sit down and talk with me,” he said. “Here was this person who took the time to spend an hour with me and describe to me life lessons, living clean and doing things the right way, but in a way in which I could relate. It’s 30 years later and I still remember it like it was yesterday.” That experience, Reid said, mirrors the impact the United Way has on a much larger scale.
