Very exciting news coming from Education and Community Associate Naheem Garcia in New York City today!  After a preliminary round of competition this morning, two of our three representatives will be competing tonight for the August Wilson Monologue National Championship.

Tyrel Joseph, a sophomore at Codman Academy Public Charter School automatically advanced as he is the Boston Champion. Boston's first and second runners up competed in order to win a spot tonight.

Reanna Johnson, a student at Dorchester Academy, performed her piece this morning and has made it into tonight's competition. Halima Ibrahim, our representative from Snowden International School, did not advance in the competition, though all students will perform their pieces tonight as part of the celebration of August's work.

We are confident that Tyrel and Reanna will continue to make us proud, with every finger (and toe) crossed that we place strongly, perhaps even win, this evening's event. Please send all good vibes and thoughts to NYC tonight, and we will be sure to keep you posted if/when we have more good news to share.
