So I watched Black in America 2 last night and Wednesday night. The one person who stood out the most was Principal Steve Perry. Mr. Perry was born to a teenage mother and raised in public housing. He received his masters in social work from the University of Pennsylvania and his undergraduate degree from the University of Rhode Island. Husband and father of tow sons he has worked for various politicians (US Senators, Mayors and presidential candidates) and as the director for a homeless shelter. Mr. Perry is the principal and founder of the Capital Preparatory Magnet School in Hartford, CT. A school that prepares low-income high school students for college. The amount of love and effort he puts into his school is incredible. To hear him say that over 90% if not all of the children that graduate from his Connecticut Magnet school go to college is phenomenal!
