Kay Nicholls is a mom on a mission, one she couldn't have imagined nearly three years ago.  "It was June 17, 2010," the Greenville mother remembers.  "His last words were 'bye mama, I love you'", she says through tears.  That was the day Nicholls lost her son, Daniel.  The 23 year old, a motorcycle lover, went out to meet friends in Greer and never came home.  "He was killed less than a mile from our house," Nicholls says.

In coping with her pain, Nicholls found a new passion that aims to keep others, like her son, safe on the roads.  "I had to find a new direction," she says.  Now, she heads up the Greenville chapter of the Motorcycle Awareness Alliance.  The group began several years ago in Anderson County, and recently has added chapters in Greenville, Laurens, and Oconee Counties.
