All the RAGE

Organization honors young people for community contributions

(Continued)

Rochell said 18- to 34-year-olds and their contributions are often overlooked by “more seasoned” generations. But people in the age group are capable of being bold and radical for God in a nontraditional way, she said.

The generation lacks receiving praise, which is why it’s important for RAGE to acknowledge outstanding, passionate people, Rochell said.

Duncan said the recognition has the potential to influence more people.

“They say that our generation is one that complains, but when you actually see people making a difference, it might motivate kids,” she said. “You never know what lives you’re influencing.”

Sparks said there may be controversies between generations, but RAGE tries to break stereotypes.

She also loves the organization’s emphasis on God’s influence. Sparks said RAGE focuses on how God works within the lives of the younger generation to positively affect the community.

She hopes the organization will be around for generations to come.

“So often the emphasis is focused on what the younger generation is not doing,” Sparks said. “It’s high time for an organization to honor and realize that younger generations are doing positive things.”

RAGE honored 14 individuals at its March 16 ceremony: Duncan, Troy Taylor and Lacey Watson for Community; Antwyon Gordon, Ralynn Kelley, Phillip Washington and LaKeshia Johnson for Education; Randy Nunn, Sanovia Garrett, Michael Raymore, Martina Raymore and Jackie Raymore for Ministry of Music; and Sparks and Jasmine Goree for Health.
