Akeem Robinson and Burton Washington stopped in to check on the current Brotherhood members.
Akeem and Burton have both served the United States in the military. We were all excited to see them.
Honoring Founding Brotherhood member Evan Little!
He has supported the Brotherhood organization in so many ways since helping to create it in 2004. Here is an excerpt from his interview which is in the January 2018 edition of BROTHERHOOD Alumni newsletter.

Back in 2004, my fellow classmates and I along with the help of Dr. Wyatt created a landscape to help transition students into the reality of high school. What started as “pizza parties on Fridays” became more of students teaching other students. Fraternity, Responsibility and Creativity were essential building blocks we used to help build courage, self confidence and adolescent independence.
Paying it forward is the only way I can describe it. Often taking the lessons and situations that Dr. Wyatt has coached me through and putting a spin on it to make it relatable to a younger student, it built a trust within us. We took our mistakes as seniors, and created a comfortable environment where you weren’t judged by your peers, but was accepted as equals.
Throughout the years I’ve worn my involvement with the B’hood as a badge of honor. I’ve kept in contact with several members past and present and always felt welcomed as like a big family.
What once started as a project to earn community service hours has blossomed into a bond that transcends beyond a friendship. It has become a Brotherhood.
