Americas Promise to Youth

On 6/16/04, Clay appeared with Naomi Judd at America's Promise to Youth gala. This was the first annual gala for the group as they paid tribute to those whose personal and legislative leadership is helping improve the lives of millions of children by ensuring that every youth has the five fundamental resources they need to succeed. The five fundamental resources, known as the Five Promises are: ongoing relationships with caring adults, safe places with structured activities during school hours, a healthy start and future, marketable skills through effective education and opportunities to server. Senators Edward Kennedy, Ted Stevens, and Hillary Clinton and Representatives Deborah Pryce, Harold Ford, and Tom Osborne were all honored and introduced by a young person selected to represent their home state or district. The Bubel Aiken Foundation provided each youth presenter with a 1500 dollar scholarship.
