Lead Strategist, Jeri Brooks, spoke at the Aldine Community Transformation Center’s Teen Enrichment Academy (School of Business) Commencement Ceremony.
Students apart of the 9 week summer program ranged in ages 14- 18 and were broken into two programs based on age: Life and Leadership Academy and Empower 2 Employ. The program encourages job readiness and prepares students for higher education opportunities.
The invitation to speak was extended by Ms. Sylvia Bolling, Aldine Community Transformation Center Program Executive Director, saying she prayed about the decision to choose a speaker and Ms. Brooks was put on her heart.
Jeri spoke on POWER: our potential, obedience, how to walk by faith, keep the enthusiasm, and how we should never forget to remember. She joined in celebrating the young graduates and encouraged their “future journey in education and life,” and left the students with a gift bag containing a personal bible and journal.
