Posted on 02/20/2018

Celebrating Black History Month, the High School of Commerce invited some of its outstanding alumni to share testimonies of their struggles and success with students and staff.

Once High School students, today they are thriving professional adults,educators, entrepreneurs, performing artists, school principals, decorated athletes, and certainly trailblazers- who stood before our students with inspiring words of encouragement and motivation.

Guest speakers included Shaquana Bailey, Hassan Graham, Myles Sander, Lavar W. Click-Bruce, Julius Walker, Tiffany Porter, Moriah Wilkins, Dr. Monique Farrell and Dr. Marc Gomes. Their accomplishments are numerous including for Dr. Gomes being the youngest school assistant principal in history in Washington D.C. at Dunbar High School, and for Mrs. Porter, earning the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Millennium Scholarship which pays for her undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate degrees in full.

With their stories, they inspired students to be their very best amidst lifes journey.
