Those of us who have worked with Jerimee on any project know just how hard he works to help others. He is always on call if I need him to help with tech issues on BlueNC. I know how much he helps other groups and organizations. This past weekend he was awarded the Tyre Taylor Young Democrat of the Year by the Young Democrats of North Carolina.
Although several state organizations preceded the national organization, the Young Democrats of North Carolina, led by Tyre Taylor, can probably claim to be the founding fathers of the Young Democrats of America. In the spring of 1931, Tyre obtained names of Young Democrats in other states and sent letters asking them to discuss the idea of a national Young Democratic organization.
On March 4 – 5, 1932, the first national organizational meeting was held in Washington D.C., with delegates from 27 states and the District of Columbia present. One of the first articles of agreement stipulated there should be no distinction in membership and privileges between men and women.
Jerimee, you are terrific. Democrats in North Carolina are lucky to have you helping out. BlueNC is lucky to have you. You never distinguish between work and non-work hours. You are simply willing to help at any time you are called.
