A Midland woman is preparing to hit the century mark this month.

Vata Williams celebrates her one hundredth birthday later this month.

But her family and friends are already coming together at a party in Midland to honor her big day.

Midland mayor Jerry Morales proclaimed her official birthday on June 20th as Vata Williams’ day in the city. Even president Obama sent a letter wishing her a happy.

Looking back on her life, Williams says there's just one thing she wants to be remembered for.

"I tried to do my best,” she said. “And help other people."

Williams raised eleven children, and even more kids showed up to wish her a happy birthday.

A cheerleading group from Odessa put together a special routine, dancing to the song "I’m every woman."
