End of Year Celebrations


I was presented with the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award at a ceremony held in Marina Del Rey, CA. 

Dr. Reba Renee Perry-Ufele (above left) CEO of Hidden Gemstones, presented me and several others with certificates.

To my left (above) is my nephew Aulsondro 'Emcee N.I.C.E'. Hamilton who also received this award and is a nationally known gospel hip hop artist who recently graduated with a Doctorate Degree in Musical Arts.

Far left of me is Vonzell Washington, Director of President Volunteer Lifetime Achievement Award and CEO of Right-Way Management.


Pastor Christopher Bourne, Sr., me and my nephew Al.

This is the certificate they presented me along with the letter below.

I don't think about the time invested in the lives of others, it is more of a passion I have to see others progress in the talents they have been blessed with. Some need a word of encouragement, others know what and how they want to arrive and just need a gentle nudge in the right direction, and some need a 'swift kick in the pants' to get motivated in order to take advantage of their God given talents.

Others take notice and thus this type of recognition has a foundation and there are far more people making a difference in the lives of others who go unnoticed. We must continue to reach out a hand to help or offer a word of encouragement to our fellow citizens of planet earth.

The great pioneering baseball player Jackie Robinson is quoted as saying, "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives."

...until next time
