Thank you, friends and family, for all of your congratulations!

It’s been an honor and privilege running for the Board. I want to thank my mother June Grant for her unconditional love and support that’s been the foundation of any success that I’ve achieved in my life.

I’m thankful for my father Samuel Grant of Kake. Because of my dad and brother’s influence, I naturally gravitated to team sports, instilling the value of teamwork in me. I love being part of a team. However, I enjoy contributing to another team member’s success.

I want to thank all the shareholders who voted for me. We share a common vision of how Goldbelt can take a quantum leap towards new opportunities that can provide more employment opportunities for shareholders.

I want to thank for my fellow candidates for their commitment and passion to Goldbelt and shareholders. We are lucky to have you not only have you as fellow shareholders but as leaders in our community.

I also want to thank the shareholders who voted for other candidates, reminding all of us that while we have to compete for ideas on to grow Goldbelt, we all agree we want more opportunities that will help all 3,300 of us.

Lastly, I want to thank all former and current Directors for their service to Goldbelt and its shareholders. All of You built Goldbelt from nothing to where it is today. Because of our directors, they inspired me to run this year. My expertise is creating something from nothing.

Whether it’s taking an idea and making it a technology solution to serve our Veterans or growing a small business and then selling it to MTV Networks, I love building products, programs, departments, or startups.

I look forward to contributing to our Goldbelt team as we pursue numerous opportunities on behalf of shareholders.

Goldbelt is on the verge of change. I look forward to taking this quantum leap of change together my fellow shareholders, Directors, and Goldbelt Management and Employees.
