Victoria Rowell and Jonathan Babineaux

11 06 2010

The keynote address at the Celebration of Excellence was given by Ms. Victoria Rowell.  I remember her from her “Diagnosis Murder” days.  She’s a beautiful woman with another message of hope.  She shared words of wisdom and encouragement with the foster graduates and a touching excerpt from her book, The Women Who Raised Me.

Jonathan Babineaux, a defensive tackle for the Atlanta Falcons, sacrificed his only day off in December to bake Christmas cookies with the kids in a youth home.  He was presented with the Celebration of Excellence Community Service Award.

The young men and women who attended this event were truly celebrated, encouraged and uplifted during this two-day event, sponsored by the Higher Education Institute; and I was very honored and blessed to have been a small part of it.  TTFG SDG
