Happy Juneteenth!

Corpus Christi – I had the honor of being the mistress of ceremony for the Black Chamber of Commerce’s biggest Juneteenth event-the banquet.

Sunday evening I joined an original Tuskegee airman in inspiring our elders and next generation. Local African American high school students and local protectors and defenders were all awarded.

The highlight of the evening was of course the original Tuskegee Airman, Walter H. Richardson. He said the 11th commandment was to never quit. He also said to keep your bags packed because you never know when the door of opportunity will open.

Enjoy the official holiday today and remember to be all you can be. Checkout photos from the event in the “Community Service” Section.
