ELEVATE: Booker T. Men of Power


OKLAHOMA CITY (May 10, 2016) – In 2007, five young men had a vision to change the negative stereotype of African American male students. Fast forward to today, and you will see that vision playing out at Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa.
 
“From that very first meeting grew the idea that we needed to put emphasis on academic achievement as well as community service and spiritual growth,” said Dr. Anthony Marshall, Men of Power faculty advisor.
 
The group, called Men of Power, has grown to more than 65 members and has an open-door policy for any young man wanting to further develop himself.
 
“On my first day of school, my father took me to Dr. Marshall’s table and signed me up for Men of Power," said Warren Fuselier, a junior at Booker T. “I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.”
