FOR THE FELLAS
Congratulations to Chicago’s Urban Prep Academy they are celebrating yet another year of extraordinary success. For the fifth year in a row, all 240 seniors at the all-African-American-male high school have earned acceptance letters into a four-year college or university!!!!!
On Tuesday, the Class of 2014 celebrated their momentous occasion during a traditional ceremony where they exchanged their red uniform ties for a red-and-gold striped tie - a tradition done in observance of their achievement.
“The tie represents to me moving on from a boy to becoming a young man and actually doing something with my life,” graduating senior Dumar Harris told NBC Chicago. The mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel attended the ceremony Tuesday to give the students a few encouraging words. Dwayne Wade has also donated $10,000 through his foundation, Wade’s World.
omg i remember visiting this school during alternative spring break with nsbe…awesome to see this black excellence
wasn’t expecting that, GoT. but it was welcome.
gotta love margaery during the drawn out, awkward silence: “Look! The pie!” *doe eyes*
this song…man. it puts me in such a mood.
i wish i had enough pennies to see her at the end of may…
but if i’m goin my ass will be in the range of rows QQQQ through ZZZZ.
to quote a friend, so sad.
“Always talking Neji born prodigies
No love for hardworking Rock Lees
Pushing through when the chips are down
That’s muthafucking willpower
No Sleep. Working after hours
Lack of ability doesn’t mean lacking in tenacity
Breaking New Waves
Count on that undying ferocity
Never feeling that I’m playing the correct part
But if I keep flowing one day turn 9 Arts
Spitting that fire
Threatening to burn down empires
Or if I’m lucky inspire dreamers to burn brighter
Ya boy preaching to the choir
I’m just another Shioon”
