Brazos County NAACP hosts 36th annual banquet
The 36th annual NAACP banquet hosted by the Brazos County Branch was held Saturday at the College Station Hilton.
President Ann Boney says she looks forward to this event every year as an opportunity to discuss change and local issues.
Saturday two scholarships were awarded and instead of a keynote speaker, a group of local students led and participated in a panel discussion.
“We're talking about leading in the future so we need to make sure that our young people are equipped,” said Boney. “We have those young people that are equipped and so the very essence about them being ready is the fact that we want to showcase that they are ready to lead in this next generation."
Boney says they are always looking for new members to join the Brazos County NAACP.
