Recipients must be single parents with financial need majoring in special education. Roberts was chosen class speaker for the December 2007 Commencement ceremony.

In her address she spoke about the ripple effect caused by pebbles tossed in water and challenged her fellow graduates “to give back, to toss your pebbles of kindness. Any pebble you reach down and grab from your path in life and toss to someone else will make a difference.” Kathy Devereaux was named the first recipient of the Carla Roberts Special Education Teaching Scholarship and later created the Lifelong Learner Scholarship for Academic Excellence.

Watch and listen to Carla Roberts commencement speech.
