Gwen Webber-McLeod attended the Auburn/Cayuga NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet.
The keynote was delivered by Chol Majok, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. Chol is a candidate for City of Syracuse Common Council and executive member New American Forum.
At the 2019 banquet, eight Auburn High School seniors were awarded the William and Helen Jackson Scholarship.
“Seeing these confident young women of color stand and state the colleges they will attend made me so very proud,” Gwen said.
