BBY 2014 (Be the Best You)

A HUGE THANK YOU to Barbara Barrington Jones and all of the staff at this years BBY!
Barabara has made a perpetual scholarship in Reesa's name for every BBY, starting this year!
How awesome it is! And what a way to remember Reesa and have her message of love and hope be remembered!
The staff wore purple shirts and the necklaces they gave to the girls had a star on it. Even the girls' group names were "star" themed. (like Galaxy Gals)
After a tribute to Reesa we all went outside and everyone let a purple balloon float away and promised to try a little harder each day to be a better person and help others. What a sight to behold as over 250 balloons were released! We also sang "A Child's Prayer" and "God Be With You" while being accompanied by a beautiful guitar melody!
Thank you Barbara and Staff!!!!!!!

Thanks you to Savannah and her group for taking pictures with us!

Here's some pictures of Reesa when she went to BBY in 2012.

  1. I just wanted to let you know how touched I was by your daughter's story, and how grateful I feel to have had the opportunity to meet your beautiful family. I love Reesa's message of forgiveness and hope. It truly was an answer to my prayers. Thank you so much for changing my entire BBY experience.
    Love, Savannah Pike
