Kudos to Gift of Life Foundation's 2017 program graduates. The group of women were recognized during a ceremony at First Baptist Church on May 11. Restauranteur , motivational speaker and author Martha Hawkins, owner of Martha's Place, was the guest speaker. She encouraged the graduates to never give up on their dreams and to remember the mentoring they'd received through the Gift of Life. Each graduate received a certificate of completion by their Gift of Life nurse or social worker.
