Dr. Romeo B. Garrett presented with a certificate of merit at the Ward Chapel.

Description

Dr. Romeo B. Garrett's work did not go unnoticed. He received countless awards in his life, and this was just one of them. This merit certificate was awarded to 10 African Americans in the Peoria area to honor their efforts in promoting civil equality. Dr. Garrett was an avid speaker about racial inequalities and was never afraid to stand up for what is right. This award is not only important in Garrett's life, but emphasizes that if people use their voice for good, they will be heard and a positive change in the community can take place.
