POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) - Pearl River Community College celebrated Black History Month with a special guest speaker.
PRCC Alumna Dr. Kellye Bolar is an educator, writer, dancer and a choreographer, but Tuesday she added motivational speaker to the list.
“What I just wanted to share with everybody today is about success and it being a choice and about just creating a plan and following through with action in order to achieve the goals that you want to achieve in life,” Bolar said.
Bolar preached that with love, adventure and growth anything is possible.
Student body President Jonathan Dixon said it was an honor for him to participate in the event.
“What I took away from this speech is to not stop believing in yourself because you’re black, stand up for what you believe in and keep pushing forward,” said Dixon.
Bolar said regardless of race, gender or background, she wants students to know that anyone can achieve success.
