On Back to School Night

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 was back to school night. Aspire and Achieve Members along with
100 Black Men Members were on hand to lend support to Manhood Development Teacher, Mr. Harris, and to speak to the students and parents about our organizations. We spoke about the work we do, the resources we offer and the support we give to our Kings.

We were happy to be visited by former AAMA teacher Lamar Hancock, who is now in charge of Literacy in the OUSD Office of Equity. And Principal Staci Ross-Morrison stopped by to meet our members and thank us for the support we offer.

When you step inside our portable classroom, TP8, you can't help but be impressed by the scope of the curriculum Mr. Harris has, and the ways he seeks to support, encourage and challenge our Kings to not only be empowered, but to also help the other Kings in the class. We are thrilled with the new teacher and the new class and we look forward to making 2017-2018 our best year yet!

Our Aspire and Achieve  tutor, Maxwell Shapiro, talks with Derrick Nesbit, who is both an Aspire and Achieve member and 100 Black Men Member

100 Black Men leaders, Langston Walker and  Darryl Richardson,  part of the many dedicated leaders who provide  mentoring, discussions, school and business visits and food at every meeting. Aspire and Achieve is proud and honored to be working with such outstanding leaders. 

Former AAMA Manhood Development Teacher.  Lamar Hancock. Although  Mr. Hancock is very busy developing his work at the OUSD Office of Equity, he works on many assignments and his heart is still with, and will always be with,  the Kings he taught and the new Kings.
