"I believe in institutions and people who’ve laid the path and continue to walk among us,” he said. “People that are tended for, seed planted and watered. I greatly admire folks like that.

They are our teachers. I’m here because of you and still move because of you. As I reflect on this honor I can honestly say you are the ‘key’ to my success.”
