From: Gloria R. Scott
To the late Dr. Will B. Scott, whose tenacity and belief in the potential of young African Americans to succeed led him to foster high level baccalaureate, masters and doctoral education for more than 2,000 students during his 39 years of professorship and administrative leadership in HBCUs, Predominantly White Universities, U. S. Government and Professional Associations, and his specific focus on youth and adults from Corpus Christi area - including production of A Masters degreed student - Jovonne Williams, from Harvard University.
He clearly understood and focused on Education as the ultimate permanent freedom from slavery and the key to achievement.

I Honor You

From an Honorer:
How can I honor those who paved the way to freedom, but were put to death and hung on trees as a form of amusement?
How can I honor those who paved the way to unity, but were raped?
How can I honor those who paved the way to victory, but were treated with unspeakable brutality?
How can I honor those who paved the way to success, and shed tears to fill so many rivers?

I honor you through education.

I honor you through dedication.
I honor you through integrity.
I honor you through success.
I honor you through intelligence.
I honor you through unity.
I honor you through wisdom, but most of all, I honor you through love.

Words and actions can never truly honor you the way you deserve to be honored, but since this is what I have to give, I give it all to you with wholeheartedness.

A Tribute to the Black Experience in Church and School

From: Katie Givens Palmer
I was born in 1951 in Salisbury, NC and was reared in a family of nine children by my father and mother. I am standing tall and still rising because of these two institutions.
In church, at the Thomas St. Church of Christ, in Salisbury, NC I went from BOB to MRE.
I learned the BOB-Books of the Bible at the age of 10 and today I have a MRE Masters of Religious Education degree from Shaw University Divinity School. My thirst for learing more and more about God, Christ, the church and how we should strtive to live started here at church. We were brought to Sunday school and church services by my parents, Thelma and Robert Givens.  Thanks to them and the teachers at church, I was grounded in the basics and continued to build as time passed.
My school- Monroe Elmentary and Price Jr. Sr. High Schools are the focus of this tribute. Growing up and being educated in segregated schools with inadequate substandard text books and libraries, did not stop the dedicated and determined teachers wwho taught us to read the line and above and between. I remember being told, read everything your hands touch and this has been part of the driving force for me today. I would to name some of my teachers who sacrificed for us to succeed no matter the odds.
Thanks to: My Parents-Thelma and Robert Givens and my teachers Mrs. Gibson, Mrs. Johbnson, Mrs. Whittington, Mrs.Finger, Mrs. Smoot, Mr. Robinson, Mr. Odell Watson, Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Verbal.
I thank God for each of you being in my life.
