The Forward Lookers Federated Club continues to lift while lending support to 2021 high school graduates. On Sunday, August 8, in Cade Chapel Baptist Church Family Life Center, the club lauded three college-bound freshmen with a Trunk Shower: Tyra Patterson, Jim Hill High School graduate; Anthony Richards, Callaway High School graduate; and Shani Siddiq, Murrah High School graduate.
The trunks, overflowing with essentials for college life, were a welcome sight and heartily accepted by recipients and their families after an introduction by Trunks for Seniors committee chair Carol Cooper and a pep talk from Forward Lookers president Mary Collier.
Patterson is attending Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS. Student athlete Richards is attending Meridian Community College in Meridian, MS, where he will play basketball. Siddiq has begun her academic year at Prairie View University, in Prairie View, Texas.
The three young scholars gave members of Forward Lookers a lift on their climb. Their verbal presentations and expressions of appreciation for the gifts, along with strong academic foundations, offer positive proof that they are prepared to face the challenges of college campus life in their quest for academic success, even in the midst of this unprecedented chaotic time.
