"I had the pleasure to work with Terry Allen during a RMC (Real Men Cook) event. What I discovered was how dedicated he was to not only the project, but the people. I also saw the tireless effort he used while working in his role at the business assistance center. Terry's level of expertise in his field in outstanding and for those who know him both personally and professionally would say he has a heart the size of Texas! I found out later that he volunteers his time to Real Men Cook every year! If he had a dime and you needed it, he wouldn't offer half or five cents, he would give his all! He would be an asset to any company or client."
