College Access Now or Never

IMG_2731What a great workshop today!  Dr Taquan Stewart gave an excellent presentation on A-G requirements and the benefits and downfalls of taking AP/Honors classes.  A-G requirements are classes high school students need to graduate, and classes they need in order to gain acceptance into the colleges of their choice.  The workshop provided information on important deadlines that every student needs to know in regards to ACT/PSAT test dates and FAFSA deadlines.

Fly – Tuskegee Airmen – February 20, 2016 (Update)

There are a lot of movies, plays and other media available on World War II, but very little of it is dedicated to the 332nd Fighter Group of the United States Army Air Forces, better known as the Tuskegee Airmen.

On Feb 20th, 8:00pm, the Pasadena Playhouse is featuring the play, “Fly”, the story of the Tuskegee Airman. The event will begin with a VERY special informational at the Alpha House, facilitated by Brother Theodore Lumpkin, Tuskegee Airman, at 5:30pm! The Esquires will be afforded the opportunity to interact, engage and converse with one of OUR very own heroes.  The Esquires will also be provided luxury transportation and a meal prior to departing to the play. 

This group of African American aviators shared the dream of flight and jumped at the chance to fight against racism while putting their lives on the line to serve their country. “Fly,” at the Pasadena Playhouse Jan. 26-Feb. 21, pays homage to these men by providing insight into their story.

February 20, 2016

What a night!  The expressions on the faces of the Esquires as they listened to the stories of the Tuskegee Airmen was priceless!  These young men truly grasped the importance of the moment.  They realized they were being exposed to a rare opportunity.  The impact the Tuskegee Airmen had on them was unmistakable, as they were able to relate those stories to what they witnessed when they were taken to see the play “Fly – The Story of the Tuskegee Airmen”.
