  • BRIGHT Award honorees are making a difference in our community

    Apr 10, 2015, 1:09 p.m.

    As the BRIGHT Award event founder and organizer, I take pride in what BRIGHT means. Each honoree is Bold, Respectful, Intelligent, Gifted, Hardworking, and a Treasure to the community. They have stepped above and beyond societal norms and succeed at becoming productive pillars in the community. These are individuals that I would like my future children to admire. Generational curses and stereotypes do not stand a chance against these six amazing people. I thank them for their countless days of hard work that they have done and the ones that they face.
