Parade: Dekalb Scholarship recipients Shaqeira and Carlen smiled proudly as they rode inside the ASU Dekalb parade vehicle. The ladies were very grateful for the care packages they received.

They were driven by Dekalb member Kevin Ponder with cheerleaders Yancy, Nelson, and Boynton in-tow. Dekalb members seen in the crowd: Sylvia, Janice, Ethel, Bobby T., and Maxine. Thanks so much to the volunteers that painted, spread glitter glue, and stayed up all night decorating the truck: Debra, Marva, Gale, Donald, Ceola, Neva, Wilbur, and Tamara...y'all rock!
