BLACK-OWNED COLLEGE PREP SCHOOL WITH 100% GRADUATION RATE CONTINUES TO MAKE HISTORY


The Wilson Academy, a Black-owned College Prep School based in the Atlanta area known for its unique academic approach and consistently high-performing students, is making history again. The school hosted its first-ever Legacy Leaders Gala on March 23, 2023, at 7:30pm to celebrate community leaders and raise funds to support students like Sodiq Adeniyi, Isaac Machot Majok Gol, and James Turic Chol Gol; young men whose lives were transformed through education and basketball.

Here are several of the students’ personal stories:

Sodiq Adeniyi, born in Lagos, Nigeria, overcame tremendous personal challenges including the tragic loss of his mother. Sodiq secured an academic scholarship to The Wilson Academy, where he also excels on the basketball court. His story exemplifies the impact of education and mentorship on young lives.

Isaac Machot Majok Gol, 17 years old, from Rumbek, South Sudan, found a passion for basketball at a young age. With the support of his uncle, Isaac moved to the United States to escape poverty and violence, and pursue his dreams of a better life. He is currently a student at The Wilson Academy where he continues to develop his skills in the classroom and on the court.

James Turic Chol Gol, 13 years old, also from South Sudan, feels fortunate to have escaped the ills of civil war. Since coming to The Wilson Academy, James has made significant strides in both academics and athletics, thanks to the support of his teachers and coaches.

The Legacy Gala is a unique opportunity for us to gather and celebrate community leaders, honor the accomplishments of our students and their families, and invest in establishing a legacy of excellence,” said Byron F.

Resources For Enhancing Your Added Value In The 21st Century Marketplace


By Pierre Clark, Managing Partner, NuMillennium Opportunity Capital Ltd.

 

How To Enhance Your Own Added Value In The 21st Century Marketplace


Dr. Martin Luther King said Everybody can be great. Because everyone can serve. The key is to be the best at whatever you are. Because the key to success in the world is the value you add in dealing with others in whatever you do in the world. Because everyone out there has a talent where you can contribute and add value to the world.

 

But in today’s world you have to sharpen, enhance and present that added value. Far too many of you are waiting for someone to validate your own skill set. In the world of the 21st century you will have to validate, build upon improve and market your own skill set and your own ability to add value in whatever circumstance you find yourself in.

 

Companies are ruthlessly laying off tens of thousands of workers. Using AI and other tools, They are looking to automate and outsource many tasks and skills they formerly paid workers thousands of dollars a month to perform.

National Freedom Day Curator
Venita Benitez Pens Acknowledgement
Letter To Governor Greg Abbott


Venita Benitez Pens Open Acknowledgement Letter To Governor Greg Abbott for National Freedom Day

March 11, 2024

 

Honorable Governor Greg Abbott

Office of the Governor 

P.O. Box 12428 Austin, Texas 78711

Subject: Heartfelt Gratitude for Recognizing National Freedom Day

Dear Honorable Governor Abbott,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to express my deepest appreciation for your recent action in officially recognizing National Freedom Day, February 1, 2024, on December 6, 2023. As a proud Texan and an advocate for liberty, I am profoundly grateful for your commitment to commemorating this significant day.

The 75th anniversary of National Freedom Day holds immense importance for our nation. It serves as a poignant reminder of the progress we have made in securing freedom and justice for all American Citizens. On this day, we honor President Abraham Lincoln’s approval of the Joint Resolution of Congress, which led to the adoption of the 13th Amendment on December 6, 1865. This historic amendment abolished slavery and marked a pivotal moment in our country’s journey toward equality and human rights.

Your recognition of National Freedom Day not only celebrates our past achievements but also underscores the ongoing fight against modern-day slavery and injustice. As we reflect on our freedoms and liberties, we must remain vigilant in addressing the challenges that persist. Your leadership in acknowledging this day encourages all Texans to join hands in promoting awareness and advocating for a world where every individual can live free from oppression.

I commend your unwavering dedication to our great state and its citizens. Your commitment to upholding the principles of freedom, justice, and peace aligns with the spirit of National Freedom Day. May this commemoration inspire us all to continue working toward a more just and equitable society.

But that’s not all! The State of Texas Resolution further solidifies our commitment to freedom. It serves as a testament to our state’s dedication to upholding the principles of liberty and equality. The Texas State Resolution for National Freedom Day was signed, reaffirming our commitment to liberty, equality, and justice.  As Texans, we stand united in honoring our shared history and advocating for a better future.

This resolution holds profound significance as it commemorates the adoption of the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution on December 6, 1865. By abolishing slavery, this historic amendment marked a pivotal moment in our nation’s journey toward freedom and human rights.

I am pleased to inform you that two distinguished representatives played a crucial role in this achievement:

 

Senator Drew Springer, Jr. (District 30)

His commitment to liberty aligns perfectly with the spirit of National Freedom Day.

     Representative Matt Shaheen (District 66)

Representative Shaheen shares Senator Springer’s dedication to Texas values and economic development. He works to eliminate burdensome regulations that hinder business growth

His support for life and liberty underscores the importance of National Freedom Day.

As proud Texans, we must recognize the collective efforts of our state leaders in promoting awareness and honoring our shared history. The Texas State Resolution serves as a beacon of hope, reminding us that freedom is not just a promise but a living reality for all.

Additionally, our local community has taken a stand too. Mayor Jeff Cheney signed the City of Frisco Proclamation, emphasizing the significance of National Freedom Day within our city. Mayor Cheney’s leadership exemplifies our city’s commitment to fostering justice and an inclusive and just environment for all.

Once again, thank you, Governor Abbott, for your steadfast support of this essential observance. I look forward to participating in each succeeding National Freedom Day February 1, celebrations and contributing to the dialogue on freedom and human rights.

With sincere gratitude,

Venita Benitez Advocate for Liberty

MEET THE FOUNDER BEHIND MARYLAND’S FIRST PRE-APPROVED BLACK-OWNED 5-COUNTY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION

Founder & CEO Troy Smith

Troy Smith, as the Founder and CEO of G1 Investment LLC and the United States Economic Rights Coalition (USERC), is working with seven other African Americans to launch the proposed C3 Federal Credit Union, which will be Maryland's first-ever Black-owned 5-county Federal Credit Union. His group began meeting in March of last year to develop an FCU to serve their communities’ underrepresented African American and Hispanic residents.

Troy and his team are working hard to raise $10 million in donated capital. Their goal is to convince 100,000 people to donate just $100. They are based in Charles County and Prince George's County, Maryland, and have worked throughout the year on the NCUA Proof of Concept submission, which requires the organizers to rigorously research all the legal characteristics of chartering a federal credit union, specifically focusing on their Purpose and Core Values, Field of Membership, Subscribers, and Capital Funding Plan. NCUA reviews and scores each Critical Element in the Proof of Concept using a 100-point scale, providing a score of up to 25 points for each element.

For groups meeting the minimum score of 80, the NCUA will send a formal invitation to submit a full charter application. Proposed C3 Federal Credit Union has received that formal invitation. Meet the leader of a group of volunteers who worked all 2023 to submit a Proof of Concept application to the National Credit Union Association (NCUA) to establish a black-owned five-county community development Federal Credit Union Charter. The National Credit Union Association (NCUA) issued a historic Pre-Approval letter to Proposed C3 Federal Credit Union on January 28, 2024.
