Tay-lor Lassiter, a senior at Clay High said, "I would like to earn a Bachelors Degree in Nursing. I wish to become a Registered Nurse and be a disaster relief nurse." Former students of Hall scholarships spoke to the au-dience, telling them of successes in college and in life.

The guest speaker of the evening was Sam Kouvaris, Sports Director and Anchor of WJXT News -for the past thirty years in Jacksonville. He challenged the students to "make a difference in life...Put yourself in a position to succeed in life. There is a difference between not just wanting to win, but in being prepared to win," said Kou-varis. "Be a leader in the community. Always do the right thing. It will gratify some and astonish the rest," Kouva-ris quoted Mark Twain. Kouvaris received a standing ovation for his inspiration-al message. "Dad's legacy of giving back to the citizens of Clay County continues," said Virginia Hall, President of the Hall Charities, as she thanked students, their families and supporters.
