Rolling Out Quote of the Day:
“When I was doing my research on this award, I found out that Toyota really has a big heart for veterans. And with me being a veteran who spends time meeting other veterans — particularly women — I came to realize that we don’t really have a voice. So I’m just so thankful for a moment like this so that I can be a voice for so many who are forgotten.” — Dr. Shawneequa M. Harris
