Last week, we had a first for the Sunflower County Freedom Project-- an event that was dedicated solely to celebrating our graduating seniors! The first portion of the event was a "signing day", where our seniors announced to the public what colleges they will be attending next Fall (just like highly-recruited high school athletes do). We are pleased to announce that Ms. Tatyana Culpepper will be attending Millsaps College, Mr. Quay Williams will be attending Ole Miss, and Ms. Sharonda Edwards will be attending Berea College.

 After the college announcements, we had an alumni induction ceremony; our staff members gave speeches dedicated to the seniors and officially welcomed them into the SCFP's 2017 alumni class. We gave the seniors custom made SCFP stoles to wear on graduation day, had an SCFP cake made with their names on it, and had a room full of congratulations cards and love notes created by our younger Freedom Fellows. This event was a blast, and we are excited to make it an annual tradition at the SCFP!

We are SO proud of our seniors for their accomplishments up to this point, and we can't wait to see what amazing things they will accomplish in the future! Please join us in sending much love and congratulations their way! Check out some pics from the event below...
