There are plenty of us who can point out problems in our communities and complain and then there are the select few who see a problem and then do something about it. Chris Brantley from Clay County is one of those select few. Brantley recognized a need for father figures to be involved in his local school, Piggott Elementary. He started Watch D.O.G.S. This stands for Dads of Great students. In Clay County, more than 15 percent of homes are single female headed households. Brantley and his team of watch dogs spend time in the schools providing role models. They also help with security. And you don't even have to be a dad of a student. They have grandfathers, uncles and stepdads who are part of the 35 member team. Hats off to Chris Brantley and all the members of the Watch DOGS. You are making this A Better Region 8.
