My father is a chemical engineer. On his days off, my dad always goes around in many schools in the CSRA to demonstrate science and talks about how to be an engineer. The coolest part when my dad comes to our school is when we've been given the chance to ride in the hovercraft which he made. He also was a volunteer coaching soccer at the Family Y. He taught us to do things in schools and how to play well in soccer and golf. My dad is a great model for my brother and me. I think my dad should be named Columbia County's Father of the Year.
Father: Hardish Tuli
Essay by: Nissa Tuli
My father, Hardish Tuli, is the most important person in my life. I can list many reasons why he should be father of the year. He's funny, as in joking around, he's kind, brave, very, very smart and a generous person.
And he is very helpful. He helps me when I get in trouble and encourages me to keep going on. He's always right there beside me when I need him. When I am sad or mad, he makes me laugh. My dad helps me earn money and helps me get good grades. I understand how he explains things better than anyone else.
With him around, I will be able to have a happier and easier life. When our family stays at home on New Year's Eve, my dad and I get out ginger ale and celebrate when everyone else is asleep. He makes our family a happy family. He takes us out to eat and spends time with all of us. He takes us places to have fun, like the pool, he buys us stuff at stores, and takes care of us when we are sick. He goes to work and earns enough money to feed us. He also makes us have the best Christmas and holidays by being there and celebrating with us. Now, it's my turn to do something for him.

We think we have the best Dad because he quit his job as a scientist to have an even better job -- taking care of us! He plays with us and takes us to the pool. He even let us dress him up as a turkey during one of our field trips. He makes us laugh all the time. He plays funny jokes on us, like one time he cracked an egg over our head which scared us until we realized he had drained all the insides out! He always looks after us and keeps us safe.

My dad is very special to me. He is willing to do anything for anybody or anything.
My dad is a loving and caring father and husband. He takes very good care of our family. He is a strong and brave man and never gives up.
Whenever I need help I can count on him for advice. He always helps me with my school work and problems out of school, but one thing that makes him very special is that he is a good Christian and he shares the word about Jesus with others and us whenever he can. He works real hard and wants us to be a good Christian family. He is the best! Thank you dad for everything. We love you.

" 'IMPORT'! I got it!"
"Dad! I got it! Mom, didn't I get 'import' "?
Taken from a typical night at my house, my sisters, my dad, and I all stake claim over who unscrambled the Jumble first. Dad is usually a few seconds faster, but laughingly lets me win. Even though I'm the runt of the family, my dad provides time for everyone -- the Jumble competition, barbecuing, or watching a Cary Grant flick with spaghetti and Fresca. My dad is the world's greatest simply because I know his love and concern for my family are never-ending.

Essay by: Brandon Shay
I think my father should be Father of the Year because my dad takes me down to the pool in the golf cart. He comes and gets me in rain, sleet, snow. When it is his weekend to get me, he drives six hours in the dark. He takes me places like Putt-Putt, Walt Disney World and Six Flags. He plays golf with me and plays basketball. Helps me build models such as airplanes and cars. We have nice things and a nice house because he works hard. The biggest reason I feel my dad should be Father of the Year is because he's never quit on me even though I live in North Carolina. He has been driving back and forth every other weekend for eight years. He has to be the greatest dad in the world.
I love you dad . . . sooooooo much!

My dad has shown me patience and taught me to always keep in mind that in life, "Failures are pillars to success." He shows my sisters and I that to strive by your mistakes. He also says in tennis that "Winning isn't everything, it is the only thing." After he laughs when he quotes this he tells me that one should be successful. My father has shown me to follow in his footsteps which he has set for me. He also has a love for tennis, which he has cherished and passed it on to me. My dad is the Father of the Year because of what he has done for us. His family and especially his daughters love him very much.

He gets along with everyone. He always volunteers at church. He is a good husband to my mom and a good father.
Father: Randall Marano
Essay by: Jessie Grimes
My father should be selected to be the Father of Year because he lets me be myself and he believes in self-individuality but I do have to follow the rules. He is really nice to all my friends sand helps them feel welcome in our home when they come over. He is a great person to talk to whenever I have problems because he listens. He also has a great sense of humor and isn't a stick in the mud; he laughs a lot. I have two other brothers and he doesn't show favoritism, which I think is an important thing when you're a father of three. He should be selected only because I think he has earned it.
