Thank You, Roscoe Nix

You couldn’t hope to meet a kinder, more caring man than Roscoe Nix, who died Wednesday after a full life of political and civil rights activism. Montgomery County wouldn’t be what it is today without Roscoe's leadership, and I am grateful to have known him. I’m glad he had the opportunity to see the elementary school in Silver Spring named after him in 2006. Since he was a tireless advocate for education, the honor was extremely well deserved. Although it is sad to say goodbye, Roscoe's achievements will live on in Montgomery County for decades to come.
