EFY Founder Dead At 74

As I posted earlier this month, EFY more than likely changed my life. Therefore, it made me sad to read this:

Ronald Cree Hills passed away Saturday, August 25, 2007, surrounded by his loving family. [...] Ron attended Brigham Young University and graduated with a degree in Sociology and Psychology. He was hired at BYU and later became the Director of CES Youth and Family Programs. In 1976 Ron envisioned and began developing a new youth program, Especially for Youth (EFY). Enrollment at the first EFY session was a disappointing 172. However, 30 years later EFY now has attendance at over 50,000 youth.

He was truly an inspired man...
