If the story of Dr. Bobby White were a recipe, basic ingredients-by his own self-Assessment-would be pride, courage and love for the community. Such Assessment is timely in that White is founder and CEO of Frayser Community Schools, local neighborhood Charter School group that is celebrating its first five years with the May 23 Trailblazers in Education & Community event. Six people who have been instrumental to FCS growth and successful in their own industries will be honor. Referencing three basic ingredients he identify, White said they require long baking inside of a cooking bag or crock-pot. It has taken a long time for all of those things to meld together for things to be just right for me to be able to have a skill set and now be able to lead the way that I am leading. White has led FCS growth from one to three family-centered schools in five years. A Native Memphian, he graduated from the High School that FCS now operate, former Frayser High School. Additionally, he once served as principal of the newest school in the FCS portfolio, Westside Middle School. The organization also operates Humes Middle School. They are zone-enrol Charter Schools, not traditional Charter where there is application. If you were zone to old Frayser High School, you are still attending MLK College Prep. If you were zone to Humes, you are still attending Humes. We dont have an application process. We are a neighborhood school. For White, Frayser has long been his neighborhood. He grew up there, recalling naysayers telling his parents not to send him to old Frayser High School. Shift in 1984 was rollingfrom this being white, working-class neighborhoodas Kimberly Clark, Firestone and those companies closed down. At the same time, many of the housing projects around our city were being torn down and folks were being dispersed into affordable, single-family houses that were in Frayser over period of time, Frayser went from being a predominantly, working-class, homeownership community to now, 25-30 years later, renters outweigh homeowners, mobility and transient nature of population make it challenging to even have Schools that can have sustain quality academic results. For me, that is real work. Truly educating black and brown-and in Memphis mostly poor, black children-at high level is missionary-Level work that White aggressively embraces. He has been in Education for 20-plus years. Former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. Introduce young White to contacts at Tennessee Charter School Center, lobbying group for Charter Schools, where he served briefly as assistant director. After graduating from LeMoyne-Owen College, federal government hired him to manage property and he moved to Atlanta, then Charlotte, Louisville and Birmingham within a two-year period. A single father, white daughter was in Memphis with his parents. He decided to move back, starting as teacher at Cypress Middle School, where he also was appointed football, basketball and track coach.

THREE QUICK FACTS ABOUT JUNETEENTH

ATLANTA June 19 marks a pivotal point in American History. On June 19 1865, last slaves in Texas and, more broadly, the Confederate South were free. Nationally and in cities like ATLANTA, Georgia, day has been celebrated with parades, plays and other festivities that honor African-American culture that developed during and after slavery. With COVID-19 on the horizon, some of those events will not take place due to social distancing. Efforts like HellaJuneteenth, California advocacy campaign, invite people to honor the holiday in virtual space and are pushing to recognize the day as a national holiday. Here are 6 answers to some commonA questions posed about Juneteenth: yes and No. According to archives. Gov, Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation on Sept. 22 1862, declaring on first Day of January all p'ersons hold as slaves within any State, or designated part of State, People whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free. The Proclamations apply only to States that have seceded from the United States, leaving slavery to remain unchallenged in border states, according to archives. Gov. It would take nearly two-and-half years for Lincoln's Proclamation to be relayed to Texas. In June 19 1865, Major Gen. Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas, to inform the reluctant community that President Abraham Lincoln two years earlier had free slaves and to press locals to comply with his directive. On this day, Granger announced general Order No. 3. Prior to Granger's declaration, there were an estimated 250 000 slaves residing in Texas, according to historian Henry Louis Gate Jr. Some have noted that Texas' geographic isolation may have played a role in the delay. According to Juneteenth. Com, some accounts place delay on messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas with news, while others say news was deliberately withhold. Even with order, slavery does not end in Texas overnight, according to Gates. Many slave owners travel to Texas with their slaves to escape regulations enforced by the Union Army in other States for some time. Juneteenth is a combination of June and nineteenth, in honor of the day that Granger announced the abolition of slavery in Texas. The day is also called Freedom Day. Juneteenth is not a federal holiday, but many States and the District of Columbia have passed legislation recognizing the day as a holiday. On Jan. 1, 1980, Texas was the first State to recognize Juneteenth as a state holiday. Since then, 45 other States and the District of Columbia have also commemorated or recognized the day. Several companies have announced in light of the death of George Floyd that this year they are designating Juneteenth as an official company holiday. In the past, cities held parades, festivals and forums in celebration of the holiday. With the lingering coronavirus pandemic, many of those gatherings have been canceled.

About This Data

Currently unemployed and looking for critical resources to get through the COVID-19 pandemic, parent LeQuita Bean found helping hand from her childrens School District. Bean was furloughed from her job as executive housekeeper at Olive Branch hotel until at least early June. She has three children, two of whom attend Humes Middle School in North Memphis. The last few months have been really hard, Bean say. Kids get off for spring break and never go back to school. We have problems with babysitting. We didnt know if our kids were going to get educated or pass to next grade. No income coming in. So how are your bills going to get paid if you ca go work and acquire income? New jobless filings in the Memphis area nearly triple pre-COVID ranks. Frayser Community Schools recently launched its Family Wellness Check program. The goal is for FCS staff to weekly remain in touch with students and families like Beans while connecting them with resources such as food to help them through the pandemic. With program help, Bean has found online links to food banks, got her utilities bill paid and information on finding cleaning supplies when stores in her area were low. There are people out there willing to help you in any way possible, Bean say. They let US know we are not alone in this. The Charter-operate District has made about 1 100 calls to families at its three schools since the program start, said Theodore King, FCS Community engagement coordinator. It also just to let them know that were thinking about them and that we love, respect and honor them as well, King say. FCS includes Martin Luther King College Prep High School, Westside Middle School and Humes Middle School. FCS has a total enrollment of about 1 200 students and is operated by the state Achievement School District. FCS has long argued it is more than charter operator as it serves students beyond classroom in economically distressed Neighborhood. Median household income in the 38127 ZIP code, predominantly Frayser, is 27 589, according to US Census data. MLK Prep and Westside are in the 38127 ZIP code. Humes is located on 38107 ZIP with a median household income of 26 390. Both ZIP cod median incomes are nearly half of Shelby County's median household income. The most common request from families is where to get food, King say. They recommend visiting Mid-South Food Bank mobile pantry sites and Neighborhood Christian Center, which also has a meal distribution program based in North Memphis. We have a lot of community partners that are providing a lot of resources, King say. On Wellness Check program, staff at three charter-operated schools are responsible for calling a certain number of families each week. To maintain consistency, each staff member calls the same family Whitney Nelson is office manager at MLK Prep. She says calling MLK students and families has restored a sort of normalcy during the pandemic.
