WCHS Student Amanda Spell
Waycross Mayor John Fluker and Ware County Board of Education member
Oneida Oliver-Sanders were the recent guest speakers at an awards program and
celebration of Black History month at the ALPHA Center.
Fluker told the group of students that education would unlock the door to their futures. He thanked one of his former teachers, Mrs. Francine Poller who was sitting in the audience, for her support of him during his educational career. He also reminded the students that they would face many challenges, but it would be the way they handled those challenges that would make the difference.
Ms. Oliver-Sanders reminded the group that their attitude determined their altitude and spoke of the sacrifices that must be made in order to be successful. "When I was at the University of Georgia, I wanted to go to every sorority and fraternity party they had, but I had a goal." She reminded the students of the importance of keeping their eye on the goal.
Other guest speakers included a parent, Mrs. Phyllis Dorminy and a grandparent, Mrs. Juanita Taylor who both spoke highly of the ALPHA center.
Other program participants included Pastor Fer-Rel Malone, Macedonia Baptist Church; ROTC Drill Corps under the direction of Sergeant Gene Ramos, Ware County High; Amanda Spell, vocalist, Ware County High School; Mrs. Janie Burroughs, vocalist, Special Education Teacher at the ALPHA Center; Mrs. Jennifer Muchow, teacher, ALPHA Center; and Dr. W. C. Harvey, principal of the ALPHA center.
