I have know Mr. Haney all my life and he is a true christian who has helped many people anonymously. His father and mother worked were hard workers who instilled in him traditional values and a tireless work ethic. His story is worthy of a book or movie to inspire the young who want to achieve the "American dream" via tenacious hard work and the development of their talents. He made it from the Appalachian farm of his youth to a doctor's degree in law from George Washington University to becoming one of America's wealthiest self made men. He is controversial only to those who do not truly know him.
