my little sister's graduation

I am so excited my former little sister Brittany – she graduated from the Bennett Middle College last week!  She also received a full scholarship to study at North Carolina A&T University where she plans to study criminology and work towards being a police detective.  Can you tell I am proud?

I absolutely loved the ceremony at the Bennett College (read about their proud history).  The junior marshalls dressed in white, down to the gloves and pearls, ushered us into the beautiful Ann Merner Pfeiffer Chapel for the ceremony.  Mayor Terry Bellamy of Asheville gave the young women an inspiring speech about working hard for their dreams and the choir sang some wonderful gospel selections.  The exuberance of the families was so heart warming as they cheered for their daughters, sisters, and granddaughters.

I hope you enjoy the photos and celebrate Brittany’s big day with us!

Brittany became my little sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters over 10 years ago and it is so rewarding to see her do so well and have plans for the future.  Please consider becoming a mentor because it does make a difference!
