Shouts of endearment and gratitude to Sylvia Gibson, Melba Lee Hosey, Ethel Hanks Wiley, Ada Pierce and to the tremendous parade of supporters of the George Washington Carver High School Alumni Association Inc. who hosted a dynamic scholarship luncheon. High notes of recognition also to the Honored Women of Carver, Women Business Owners, Brinkley Catering and the 2019 scholarship recipient Cameron Adams. The beautifully selected theme was, “Who Will Remember Us?” Much love to each of you and know that we are so very appreciative to the Carver Alumni for sowing seeds of love, encouragement and monetary gifts into the hearts of one of our greatest resources — our children. Great oaks from little acorns grow and character from deeds you sow.
