The keynote speaker, the Rev. Dr. Kenneth Monroe of the AME Zion Church’s South Atlantic district, told the crowd that it’s always helpful to review the past and examine the present.

However, Monroe says we are judged by our accomplishments.

Monroe says what matters most is what happens next.

Monroe told the crowd that in the midst of life’s challenges we must move forward.

Monroe says when one level of change is complete, celebration is appropriate.
