Moton Museum Director Lacy Ward, Jr. delivered the commencement address to the Prince Edward County High School Class of 2012 on May 19th, charging the graduates to be prepared for their “Joshua Moment.”

From The Farmville Herald article published May 22nd, 2012:

“Joshua came into leadership in the shadow of a great man,” Ward said Saturday morning with parents, family and guests looking on in the middle school gym. “The challenge was great. Expectations were high. Would he be prepared?

“Today, you assume your position of leadership. Today you are adults. Today you are responsible. Today is your Joshua moment. Are you prepared?”
