Op/Ed: Take Back The City 2008-09 - Tragedy at Lemmel

(BALTIMORE - November 25, 2008) - As all of you know, our latest Partner School in the Winning Teams program is Lemmel Middle School. As you untouchably also know by now, there was a terrible tragedy at Lemmel last Friday as one of the students there was stabbed to death on school grounds.

 

Here in Baltimore City, there are literally dozens of middle schools that are considered disadvantaged and could use positive programs like ours to come in and work with our kids. Although we obviously can’t be everywhere, we were able to come into Lemmel because one of my guys, Rodney Nesbitt, happens to be there already as the Basketball Coach and so it gave us an inroad into the school.

 

Although we only have a small number of students from Lemmel actually in the program, the fact is that whenever we go into the school, we are a part of that school. That means we’re involved and we need to figure out what we’re going to do in response to last week’s tragedy.

 

So, does anybody have any ideas? Suggestions? Hit me back on this email or call me on the cell at 410.961.2485.

 

This is what we do. I need you guys’ help.
