Providence, RI - May 17, 2010
Lt. Gov. Elizabeth Roberts honored Rhode Island’s exemplary high school seniors today at the Rhode Island State House as part of the Lieutenant Governor’s Leadership Awards Program. Initiated in 1993 to recognize high school seniors who have made positive differences in their schools and communities, the program enables each high school in the state to choose one student that best embodies the qualities of a student leader and exhibits both a dedication to scholarship and a commitment to community service. Sgt. FC Claude C Hines of the RI National Guard gave the keynote address and Poetry Out Loud National Winner Amber Johnson performed "Walking Down Park" by Nikki Giovanni.
