Mother

LW has an amazing mother.

Eduated.

Passionate.

Thoughtful.

Giving.

Beautiful.



Here she is posing with her husband, LW's step father, Mr. Johnny. Who is also an amazing, thoughtful man.

I had the privilage of attending the Black History Awareness Breakfast where LW's mother received an educators award for her contribution to her community long after she was retired from teaching.



I have learned so much from LW's mother. She preaches the need for an education and is proud that all four of her children have received college educations, and continuting eduation. Her passion for education is important and it's even more important to her to spread the word to young black Americans, that you can do it. So for her efforts in reaching out to the community and offering tutoring services, and the like, she was praised and presented with an educators award.

We were so happy to be witness to such an amazing time in her life. The tears were endless. We are all proud of her. And I am honored to be a part of her family.

She makes me want to be a better person....to reach out to my community. She is a strong, passionate woman who works tirelessly at food banks, shelters for battered women, schools and church activities...she never rests. And she never complains. She does it because she loves it. She would spend her last penny supporting her family and her community.

She very much deserves this award.
