Last month, charter alum Taveon Joyner visited with our current cohort of mentees at Town Creek Middle School in Winnabow to share about his experience in the mentorship program and the impact 100 Black Men of Coastal Carolina had on his life. Taveon is currently enrolled full time at Cape Fear Community College and works full-time at Novant Regional Medical Center. Thank you, Taveon for speaking with the next generation — we are so proud of you and your accomplishments!⁣⁣

A few weeks ago, students from Town Creek Middle School enrolled in the 100 Black Men of Coastal North Carolina’s mentoring program were privileged to listen and learn from former Lt. Colonel Alex C. Edwards who shared his experiences as a Commander and fighter pilot in the US Air Force. Currently, Captain Edwards flies the 787 Dream Liner for United Airlines. It's so important for our mentees to hear about the successes and achievements of other black men. Thank you Captain Edwards for sharing your knowledge!

Last week, Town Creek Middle School inducted students into the National Junior Honor Society, including three mentees from the 100 Black Men of Coastal NC mentoring program! Big congratulations to Jeremiah Simmons, Tashombi Bailey, and Julian Lemon. These young scholars are on a path to do great things in the community.
