My Night With Kids of East Texas at ‘Nights of Superstars’

Amy and Mandee with SuperstarsSaturday evening was such a special night for 15 East Texas kids who participated in  “Night of Superstars”.  These kids are awesome not only because they persevere and achieve, despite their special needs, but because they have such a great spirit!   These precious children have hurdles to climb that most of us couldn’t even imagine. This celebration honors these children, students and young adults, who manage to succeed with such maturity and with a smile on their faces!

This is the first year that Tyler has had the privilege to bring this awesome event to East Texas, and I’m so glad I was a small part of this exciting evening.

“Night of Superstars” is the brainchild of founder Greg Johnson from Dallas. The event is much like the  “Oscars” red-carpet charity event that draws numbers of local celebrities, high-profile personalities, media, and hundreds of guests!

These children reach far beyond their adversities and excel in areas such as academics, athletics, extracurricular activities, the arts, and community service.

I think I had the funniest job of all. I got to welcome these kids down the Red Carpet. One young boy, Mitchell Smith, is a Boy Scout and I spoke  him on the Red Carpet about being the most decorated Scout in his Troop. He quickly corrected me with “not Troop ma’am, I’m the most decorated in my  Den”! As it should be Mitchell!

I wanted to thank all of those who served on the committee and especially the Head Chairman of the committee, Carleen Dark. Carleen completely threw herself in this event and worked at her job here at Townsquare Media to boot. Another Townsquare Media employee who worked tirelessly as well, Amy Fish. This woman is a dynamo.

KNUE’s ‘Radio Texas Live” host, Buddy Logan was a celebrity escort, escorting Miss Elizabeth. Buddy with his SuperstarI’m just honored that I could be a part of this night. Get ready East Texas, cause you will want to be be part of this event next year!
