Last month, the Millington Central High School Honors Banquet was held. Here is the Circle of Friends Book Club speech given at the event honoring four MCHS Class of 2013 graduates:
This scholarship banquet is bittersweet for me today because it marks the last time Millington Central High School will be part of the Shelby County school system. It is also my last time here at this podium announcing scholarship winners from the Circle of Friends Book Club.
Many of our members are gone Barbara Costello and our former President Jo Peel passed away this year in January.  Tonight Mrs. Dodds and I are here to hand out 4-$500.00 scholarship checks and our remaining funds are being donated to the Millington Public Library 2013 Summer Reading Program that is in the memory of Jo Peel who loved reading and encouraged people to read.  We miss her dearly.
I embolden you all to inspire a young person you know to participate in the Millington Public Library Summer Reading Program in the memory of Circle of Friends Book Club former President.  At the end of the program the three grand prizes are 1 of 2 $100 gift cards and a bicycle with a helmet.  The program kicks off June 1, at the Millington Library from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Circle of Friends Book Club is ending the way it began giving to a program at Millington Public Library and awarding book scholarships to deserving Millington High School seniors.  There have been a couple of COFB scholarship recipients who updated us on their journey in college and we could not be prouder.  It was rewarding to read about our 2010 scholarship winner Keesa Williams in The Millington Star today.
If we had enough funds to give all the applicants for our scholarship we would have awarded a scholarship to all the students because they were all deserving.  Unfortunately, we are only able to award four students a check tonight.  The honorees were Anderson Spearman, Darrell Warberg, Whitney Fox and (not pictured) Angelique Tutor.
