The night began with a performance by Shadows in Motion, getting everyone in the room off their feet, including the dancers. One of the lead dancers shared his story of coming to America and feeling lost, but how engaging in afterschool activities he began to not only make friends but now is the leader of the youth run organization. Guests were welcomed by Di Tubbs emcee for the evening and Olivia Smith-Daughtery, board member. Students Maria and Celestina performed their original song “We Must Come Together” composed in the Texas Beacon of Light Outreach Music production class in partnership with Citizen Schools and funded through a partnership with HCDE, CASE and The Houston Endowment. Past TXBOL student, now a Baylor University student, Syndy Sosa shared the impact after school, and founder Shanceler Terry has had on her life.
