The program began with prayer led by Achiever Jeannette Porter. The president, Achiever Shelley Noisette, introduced the occasion and Achiever Cassaundra El-Amin introduced the scholarship recipient. Ms. Whicker read the essay that she submitted with the scholarship application.  

Following the reading, Achiever Valeria Edwards presented a certificate and a check to Ms. Whicker. Youth Achiever CJ Emmanuel Rice read a poetry tribute. Achiever Evelyn Durham made final comments.
