The community is invited to join Our Community Salutes-Fort Bend for a barbecue dinner and recognition celebration to honor enlisting seniors and their parents on  Sunday, May 21st from 4 to 7 pm at Safari Texas Ranch. Honorary Event Chairs Congressman Pete and Nancy Olson have supported the program, led by the local non-profit Our Community Salutes-Fort Bend, since its inception in 2013. Board President Donna Worstell said, “At a time when other graduating seniors have chosen to pursue college or vocational degrees, these graduates are choosing to commit to service of their country. It is because of their decision that others are free and able to make their own decisions.”

The event will include Master of Ceremonies Khambrel Marshall, KPRC Local 2 Severe Weather Team and host of the weekly news show Houston
. Colonel Robert H. Sholly, Army (ret.), professional lecturer, consultant, bestselling author and Nobel Laureate will address the recruits.
