Reyna Reyna sang Tejano music while Jason Carter performed uplifting hip-hop. After their performances, each artist shared the struggles of their upbringing and how they worked to overcome challenging circumstances.
Jonathan Spinks displayed his martial art skills and spoke about the self-discipline and guidance needed to excel in the art. Spinks also thanked the Bill Glass foundation for allowing him to focus on a positive path to life.

We want to thank the many volunteers who shared their valuable life lessons during the event,” said acting Warden Tristan Lemon.
