Kudos to Ariana Stacy. Ariana joined the Robotics Team at Cross Creek High School in Hephzibah, Georgia. Their first competition this year was in FIRST Robotics Competitions in Dalton, Georgia March 7 – 9, 2019. The team won the Rookie Inspiration Award and the members of the team received medallions. The team went on to compete in Columbus Georgia March 21 – 23, 2019. Congratulations to Araiana for accepting the challenge.
We will be praying for the success of the team.
Congratulations to Jayla Jackson for being invited to the African American Scholar Recognition Program. The program was held on February 28, 2019 at the Maxwell Performing Arts Theater on Augusta University campus. This award is given to the top senior and top two junior African American students in the surrounding high schools for their outstanding academic achievements. Students from over 50 schools were recognized. A desert reception followed the program.
The speaker for this program was Dr. Lester Pretlow, the Dean of the College of Allied Health Sciences at Augusta University. His discourse was directed to the juniors and seniors. His secret shared was “you only have to make a few good choices to set your life up forever”. Of the many nuggets he shared, one word of advice was to get an understanding in whatever you do. He emphasized understanding the value of choices and stressed honesty, love and faithfulness in their work. He ended with a word from Solomon. “The end of a matter is better than the beginning” – meaning hard work will pay off.
Kudos to Jayla for her hard work. She is a senior at Lakeside High School and is the daughter of Dr. and Sister Calvin Jackson.
Our prayers are that will bless her in her endeavors.
