|Me and my mom|
Her birthday is on February 9th. So, I wanted to acknowledge her. My mother is incredibly accomplished and is currently the Executive Director of Education for The Hillside Family of Agencies. Recently, she was the keynote speaker at Geneva’s 45th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. memorial service.
I just read the article discussing her speech and she dropped knowledge. She discussed what Dr. King’s life meant to her, the importance of parents having a vision for their children’s lives, and how education is the key to success. She also emphasized that the race is not over and the battle for equality has not been won. I’ve heard that she had the crowd on its feet, which is no surprise.
What can I say? My mom is a ROCK STAR!!! Here's the article discussing her speech. http://www.fltimes.com/news/geneva-mlk-speaker-urges-audience-to-work-toward-addressing-inequities/article_3376fc80-bec4-11e5-b3bd-ef2f7d4178d5.html
