These difficult times are giving us the opportunity to look inward, reflect on what truly matters, and connect with ourselves and our loved ones on a deeper level.

We at Black Diamond would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. ~ Stephen Grellet

Tearsa Edwards receives the 2017 Team Award

The team award is presented once a year, to one individual, who goes above and beyond to make Black Diamond a better team.

Tearsa is the Equine Team coordinator.

She worked tirelessly for two years to get the equine team trained, tested and credentialed to become a state equine team resource. During this time she also spent countless hours training as a ground team member and responding to missions in Virginia and out of state. Tearsa exemplifies the qualities we look for in members of Black Diamond.
