    Jul 7, 2023 | By Will Hurd

    As we stand at the crossroads of American history, the soul of our country is under attack. We are facing generational defining challenges that will shape the trajectory of the future of America.

    Mar 9, 2023 | By Will Hurd

    I’ve always been and will always be a momma’s boy. Mary Alice Hurd wore many hats — a department store buyer, master seamstress, puppet maker, cosmetologist, beauty supply owner, and beauty school director.
