Sanderson invited me to pretty much everything so they will get their own post. I was at some extraordinary events and met some extraordinary people.
On Jan. 31st I attended their mid-year graduation ceremony. It was a joyous occasion for a lot of families that day and it was a lot of fun seeing the happiness on the face of those young adults.
on Feb. 8th, I attended Rachel's Challenge. It's about Rachel Joy Scott, who was one of the victims of the Columbine shooting in 1999. I shed some tears that night and it always makes me angry that we've done nothing as a country to curb gun violence and school shootings since that time.
On Feb. 24th I attended their Black History Celebration. Amazing performances and stories told by some of Sanderson's best. Greer Webb, a Spartan alum, gave the main address.
Finally, on June 15th at 8 pm at the Raleigh Convention Center, I was honored to be on the stage for Sanderson's year end graduation. Congratulations to all the Spartan students and staff on another great year. As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out.
