The thing I enjoyed most about Concrete Roses was the HBCU trip because we got to learn about different colleges. My dream college to go is Bethune-Cookman University. I love Ms. McClellan so much and I hope I get to see her next year when I go to middle school. I just want to thank her for all that she's done for her girls and Concrete Roses.

The thing I liked most about Concrete Roses was learning to be a leader as the Student President, trying to do my best to help put. The thing I like about Ms. McClellan is how nice she is and how she will help us when we need it. I just want to say thank you Ms. McClellan for all that you've done for us.
