Spotlight “Power Couple” Edition – Mike & Laura Bagby
Our first Member Spotlight for September is all about Laura and Mike Bagby.

He’s the smart, focused patriarch of the Bagby clan; she’s the upbeat and sweet mom to all. They both have a zest for life that’s undeniable.

If you know them, chances are you feel blessed to have them I’m your lives. We know we do!
