As a small child, and the last of many siblings, college looked like a far cry of possibilities. A long the way in life, there has been many instances of people who had no need to help or steer me in the right direction, did so.

One Navy sailor stopped me one day out of high school, after not graduating and said, computers is the way to go and this is how to get a guaranteed job.

I joined the military, and the rest was history. Of course, there were wars and tough times, but from a single opportunity, the rest of my life changed forever.

I have worked for more fortune 500 companies than I can imagine. I volunteered on so many levels, from elderly homes to Orange Bowl and Super Bowl sponsored events

I left corporate America to give back to the shortage of teachers and children of color who know technology. I am just asking for you to assist me in assisting others

"America is the land of opportunity, not guarantee. But, its guaranteed you will not make it without an opportunity"”

Plantation Middle School

Location Pin Plantation, FL

60 Students

6th, 7th, 8th Grades

1 Years experience

Since 2019


What will the funds be used for

As the technology person, leadership teacher and basketball coach for this urban middle school, I would like to show our youth (mainly male) that through aesthetics, they can go on to lead a career with goals beyond sports. Whether its technical sciences or business leadership.

But, first we need funds that are not appropriated or handled from previous years.
