The ceremony, which features new citizens taking the Oath of Allegiance to the United States, welcomed Georgia Congressman John Lewis as its keynote speaker. Among being known as a public servant, Lewis is renowned throughout the country for being a civil rights leader and activist.

The four cadets from Cedar Grove High— Darion Foster, Nigel Howard, Trevion Foster and Norman Trawick—had the chance to meet Congressman Lewis face-to-face and speak with him one-on-one.
