A note from the producer
What was supposed to be a good story turned into a great one. The plan was to interview Montrece Hargrave-Tucker on her experience as a VtoV recipient. My cameraman and I set up in her Wilmington, North Carolina, home as she described the destruction caused by hurricane Florence. Her gratitude came across so genuine throughout her interview, and at the end, we stopped filming.
We sat for a few moments before she mentioned her son Maxwell, who has autism, and all the amazing benefits they receive from Verizon. I could tell this was something Montrece was passionate about. I gave my cameraman “the nod” and we were rolling again. She talked about Maxwell, the therapy he receives, and the amazing progress he’s made. It was a joy to meet Montrece and hear how her 23 years at Verizon has made her such a strong advocate for the company.
