Our first year in business has been one for which we are incredibly thankful and cannot thank you enough for your support, encouragement, and kind words.  Through The Good South, we have met wonderful people and made strong friendships.  You have allowed us the opportunity to design clothing we think best represents the South, and because of you and the The Good South Scholarship, we are assisting four students in paying for their higher education.  You have made this year in business one we will always treasure, and we can only hope the years to come are half as great as our first.  Cheers!
