To: B. Miller-Foster

CONGRATULATIONS Son! You're almost done. I am so proud of you. You spent much quality time at Walls. I've watched you tackle lots of homework, play basketball, and still have time to socialize. This may be the end of high school but it begins the life that Walls administration has prepared you for. I know you are ready for the challenge. Congratulations to you & the entire 2011 graduate class. Well done!

To: Ashleigh

Ashleigh, no mother could be any prouder than I am. You have accomplished so much and all throughout your young life you have continuously supported and helped me to raise your two younger sisters. I am so thrilled that you will be following your dream to become a veterinarian. The veterinary field will be lucky to have you because you are kind, passionate, and truly a remarkable person.

We love you,

Mom, Kaitlyn, Brianna & your entire extended family

Congratulations, Baby! You've come this far and have achieved so much success these past four years - from show choir to Dreamgirls. Now to France and Morgan State University! God has never stopped blessing you! Press on to the end. I know you're tired but the end (of this school year) is only the beginning. The best is yet to come and I can't wait to cheer you on all the way! XOXO

Dear Graduation Class of 2011 -


I wish each and every one of you success so great that only a dreamer's mind can imagine the achievements. I am extremely proud to have a son graduating from McKinley Tech, Mr. Rome Williams, whom I love more than words can convey.
