Students at Whitehaven High School had some fun as they announced which colleges they’ll attend.

Many of those students received scholarship offers for academics, so the school wanted to make sure their decisions were announced with all the fanfare of star athletes on Thursday.

As family, friends and teachers watched, each student took the stage to reveal which college they will be attending in the fall.

This is the third year Whitehaven has hosted Academic Signing Day.

I am a Native Memphian, East High Graduate, and University of Memphis Alumnus who takes pride in being able to say that I serve where I was raised. As a Peer Power Program Director, I have the opportunity to impact the lives of students who share similar beginnings as I do. These scholars benefit greatly from my experience as a student leader during college, my years of international travel as a gospel singer, and my lifelong dedication to GOD and my local church. I am a walking billboard of what is possible regardless of where you come from. It is from this philosophy, that I work to create, grow, and sustain programs that help hone youth into the people they were created to be. I started with Peer Power at its inception and I am honored to continue through our glory days.
