Thanks to the Baton Rouge Area Association of Black Journalists for inviting me to participate in their annual scholarship luncheon.

The event raised thousands of dollars to provide scholarships for young people in the community.

I had the chance to serve as the keynote speaker after being invited by good friends Todd L. Sterling and Michelle McCalope.

I also had a chance to visit with old colleagues and friends.

Here are some of the pictures I snapped in my hometown!

About Smarty Pants Academy:
Each year thousands of children are diagnosed with autism and other developmental disorders. And each day, every minute, with every second children are born with other unique abilities. In order for these children to be mainstreamed into society and or the classrooms people must be educated and made aware, they are human too. People must learn to see them for who they are, not their label. Sadly, many of their parents have no where for them to go because traditional childcare centers see Autism and other abilities as too much to handle. When others shut their doors to these children Smarty Pants opens theirs wide open! For more information please visit www.smartiepantsacademy.com.
