“The San Diego Section of National Council Of Negro Women, Inc. is proud to honor you as an outstanding member of the graduated class of 2020! It is our hope that you will continue in your strides to better yourself in the field of education.
Young Graduate, as you travel through this awesome journey called life, always remember there is a group of Prominent Women (NCNW) on the sideline of your life cheering you on as you contend for greatness.”
The National Council of Negro Women, Inc. is once again on the move. On Saturday, June 20th we honored nine high school graduates from San Diego area schools with a Driveby. A group of prominent women gathered in the parking lot of Greater Fellowship Baptist Church to decorate our cars as we planned to caravan around the City honoring a few graduates. Our first stop was 30th Street, honking our horns and yelling congratulatory greetings to this San Diego High School graduate!
Our next stop was through Valencia Park to honor the next two graduates.
They were excited to be a part of our day as their family members stood with them to cheer them on. Before the day ended, seven cars of NCNW members had travelled to other areas of Paradise Hills, Jamacha, Spring Valley, El Cajon and Eastlake. Each graduate was presented with a single rose and a small banner with their name and an NCNW logo, gift card, a bag of mixed candies from our Youth Section, a ‘Class of 2020’ engraved bracelet, a set of earplugs in our NCNW colors and a variety of other sweets donated by our members.
Other graduates not pictured included Amya Jones, Tarry Y. Flournoy, Aniya Kelly, Terriona Tanner, Kyrasani Mitchell, Jada Hughes, Kelis Knighton and Lauren Beale.
Our final graduate was honored on Monday, June 22 and she is planning to attend UCLA in the fall. This entire event was enjoyed by all who participated and was appreciated by each young lady who was honored as a proud member of the “Class of 2020!”
