"Moving toward a greater good"
The following pictures were taken during the B.R.I.D.G.E. completion ceremony of Class 03-2011, June 2011 at Fourth Street Church in Columbus, Georgia. B.R.I.D.G.E. has a 85% graduation rating. It is a 12-week intensive course open to students ages 18 - 24. Please click on the first picture or other selection to start the slide show.
During each class, Mr. Willie Coleman (Director, B.R.I.D.G.E.) allows me the opportunity to speak with the students about life experiences and goals. I am so thankful for the opportunity and time spent with each group. They teach me so many things about their world. I try to share with them the importance of assessing their current status based on my family's motto, "Each Generation Must Do Better." I ask them to measure their success against the successes of their ancestors. I want them to understand that they must do better than their parents, grandparents, and great grandparents. They must know their past in order to plan their future. If we only achieve the goals of our ancestors, then we have failed to move the next generation forward. I have been a supporter of B.R.I.D.G.E. since I was introduced to Mr. Coleman in 2005. I thank God for the work of the board and staff every day. Please show your support by becoming one of a thousand people to donate $1.00 to the organization for a minimum of four months. If you join me in this effort, we can donate $4,000.00 in four months. Do it for the next generation. Scroll to the bottom of this page and read about the Columbus On The Move Project.
