Albany -- Monroe High School honored one of its own Friday in a Black History Celebration Assembly.
Lieutenant Colonel Twala Mathis was honored by the state as the first African American woman to command a recruiting battalion on the east coast. She's only the second in the nation to do so.
Mathis says coming back to her hometown and former high school to such a welcome is an honor. "Albany is the place of my heart, and I just love coming home, and any chance I have to come it's a great opportunity, particularly having a lot of family and friends that I have not seen for a long time so it's a great honor and blessing to be back."
Albany Mayor Willie Adams was also there to proclaim February 9th Lieutenant Colonel Twala Mathis Day in the city.
Mathis is also a graduate of ASU, has been highly decorated for her military service with an array of medals including a Bronze Star.
Students at another Albany school also honored a local African American they say is a present day hero.
The celebration at "A School for Children" on Broad Avenue honored outgoing Albany Tomorrow Incorporated President Tommy Chatmon as a man who sets a good example for today's young people.
The event also featured students presenting study projects on decades from the 1920's through the 1990's.
They highlighted national events and African American achievements during those times.
