K.I.N.G.S. at the Capital

March 16th was my favorite day of the 2016 GA Legislative session, not because it was "Sign or Die" , "Crossover Day", or the day a bill got denied or turned into a law. This day was special because I had to opportunity to join a group of young men from my neighborhood as they engaged in their first glance at the political process at the state capitol. K.I.N.G.S. is an acronym for Knowledge & Intellect Needed for Gaining Success that serves as a Character Development Program.The primary focus of the K.I.N.G.S. program is to equip young men with the primary essentials and basic social skills vital to becoming successful citizens.

Progressive Parents in Pointe South

On Wednesday March 2nd, we participated in "Muffins for Moms"; an event held at Pointe South Elementary School to increase parental involvement with their child's education and to foster more open relationships between parents and school staff. I was extremely happy to be apart of the progression going on in Pointe South, particularly at Pointe South Elementary School. A school where I spent many summers as a kid participating in their summer programs. Being able to indulge with my community on educating parents and supporting teachers in the growth and development of the youth makes me humbled to even have this opportunity to serve our community. The school provided muffins for the moms, a
