There is a little more than two weeks remaining in our fall Legacy League. Come check us out at Booker T. Washington High School. Our final game is Saturday, November 17th. Marcus Hodge continues to perform at a high level. He recently returned from a recruiting visit at Grambling State University. Wesley Clements has been accepted and received an academic scholarship from Young Harris College. After the Legacy League, the 2013 L.E.A.D. Ambassadors class will be announced. It won’t be just a regular announcement. If you know L.E.A.D., you know that we do it big.
We are currently serving 70 (25 Middle School and 45 High School) Atlanta Public School students in the Legacy League. The forty-five high school LEADers are competing for one of the 20 Ambassadors roster positions. This is truly an honor and a privilege. Ambassadors are considered based on our four pillars of excellence: academics, athletics, service/civic engagement and exposure. Their involvement in these four pillars are measured with Civic Stats(tm). Being a L.E.A.D. Ambassador is an earned opportunity.
