Our L.E.A.D. Ambassadors dream about becoming a U.S. Senator. They dream about becoming business owners, husbands, fathers and philanthropists.
L.E.A.D. Weekend 2014 has come to an end and it was nothing short of well deserved celebrity status for our Ambassadors. Here’s a snapshot of this past weekend’s events.
Friday, November 14
Over 300 elementary and middle school males and females from Atlanta Public Schools received a world class baseball experience from the L.E.A.D. Ambassadors, coaches from the University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University, Georgia Tech and Georgia Highlands. As a student at Grove Park Elementary School, I dreamed of playing college and professional baseball, and that dream came true for me as a student-athlete at Georgia State University and as a professional player with the Chicago Cubs. It’s a great feeling to know that lots of students may now have that same dream.

You officially become a L.E.A.D. Ambassador when you receive your custom L.E.A.D. blazer from Miller Brothers. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was educated at Booker T. Washington High School and our Ambassadors put on their blazers for the first time at his alma mater.d

I guarantee that you will look on the news tonight and see young black males involved with crime. You should also know that L.E.A.D. Ambassadors are being empowered to lead and transform this City – their City – our City. There is indeed a new story being told about black males in Atlanta and this one doesn’t end at Wright Street.
