For several years, Wayne Hogan and firm paralegal, Senator Audrey Gibson, have been proud contributors to Empowerment Resources, Inc.’s Annual “Journey Into Womanhood” Scholarship and Celebration Banquet. The event recognizes the educational and artistic accomplishments of participants in the year-long program, and awards a scholarship to graduating seniors. Parents, grandparents, other family and friends attend the event as the young ladies recite poetry, perform skits, sing, and exhibit their latest video production.
