Take up the burden of your parents and grandparents to make opportunity open to all.” He told them that the American standard of honor and respect for those that serve is under attack. We need to work to be proud to say “America is my home.”{{more}}He concluded his remarks saying “you walk away from here with the burden to honor a respect the family you represent. Abilene appreciates everything you have done to graduate.”Honored with scholarships were Adriana Rogers, Nathanal Redic, Adrianne Victorian, Emily Daye, Canieshia Roberts, and Lenora Taylor.Councilman Williams with scholarship winner.
