On the afternoon of Thursday, June 25, Thurgood Marshall Academy held their 17th Commencement Ceremony at The Abyssinian Baptist Church. The ceremony was particularly special to the StreetSquash family because one of our most accomplished alumna, Mel Sandoval, StreetSquash ’09, spoke on behalf of the TMA alumni. Mel was introduced to the podium by our very own StreetSquasher, Kenny ’15, who spoke beautifully of Mel’s accomplishments and the impact she has had on the community around her.
Additional honors at the ceremony included Javaughn ’15 graduating from the National Honor Society, Kamali ’15 was the recipient of the Carlotti Scholarship for her commitment to service and Kenny ’15 was the recipient of the Johnnie L. Cochran Award for his exemplary attitude and commitment to education.
Congratulations to Abdoulie, Javaughn, Kamali, Kenny and Yasmin on their graduation!
