20 years of serving the community

EYC 2011 Executive Director

Kenneth Ward

Greetings, It is a great joy to welcome each of you to our 20th Annual End of the Year Celebration. Under the theme Generation to Generation: Creating a Legacy of Educational Excellence we come together tonight to celebrate a rich legacy that began in 1991 as a neighborhood after school tutoring program. We have now grown to five Academic Mentoring sites and reach hundreds of youth through our myriad of programs. In my second year as the Executive Director of College Bound, I pause to give thanks to everyone that has supported me in this labor of love. Your belief in me and the vision of making college a reality is humbling. I understand more and more each day the importance of the village in raising our children and ensuring that they escape the snares that entangle too many youth, especially our males. I realize that to continue our graduation and college going rate of 100% we must work collectively and each of us is charged with doing our individual part. The work may be hard, but the rewards are worth every bit of it. As we celebrate our 20th year, there are hundreds of lives that have been made better through our work. The power of mentoring resonates loudly as our class of 2011 goes on to the next chapter of their life. As they proudly march across the stage and receive high school diplomas, we are committed to supporting them through college with our Virtual Mentoring program to make sure that they will also be awarded a college degree. The Virtual Mentoring program will allow us to support our alumni as they matriculate at the college or university of their choice. Like myself, many of our students are first generation college students and this support will be invaluable. It will also allow us to provide scholarship, internship and other relevant information as they navigate their new world. To the students of College Bound, I charge you to live life fully. Live each day passionately. Understand that this is your journey and you must take advantage of the opportunities that are before you. Your family, friends, mentors and College Bound staff will be here to offer advice and support, but you must remain focused on your goals. Never forget that you have a unique gift to share with the world so unleash your potential. I thank all of you immensely for not only joining us tonight, but also believing in and supporting our youth. I hope that you will continue to be a part of this movement as we further College Bound's legacy of educational excellence. My best, Kenneth Ward Executive Director

EYC 2011 Keynote Speaker

Dr. Michael Eric Dyson

Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, who is an American Book Award recipient and two-time NAACP Image Award winner,is one of the nation’s most influential and renowned public intellectuals. He has been named one of the 150 most powerful African Americans by Ebony magazine. The Philadelphia Weekly contends that Dyson “is reshaping what it means to be a public intellectual by becoming the most visible black academic of his time.” He is host of the nationally syndicated public radio program, The Michael Eric Dyson Show. Dyson’s pioneering scholarship has had a profound affect on American ideas. His first book, 1993’s Reflecting Black: African American Cultural Criticism, helped establish the field of black American cultural studies. His next book, 1994’s Making Malcolm: The Myth and Meaning of Malcolm X, was named one of the most important African American books of the 20th century and was also named a Notable Book of the year by the New York Times. Dyson’s first book on Martin Luther King, 2000’s I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King, Jr., made a significant contribution to King scholarship by recovering the radical legacy of the slain civil rights leader. According to book industry Bible Publisher’s Weekly, Dyson’s 2001 book, Holler if You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur, helped to make books on hip hop commercially viable. His 2006 book Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster was the first major book on Katrina and probed the racial and class fallout from the storm. And Dyson’s 2005 New York Times bestseller Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind? helped to jump-start a national conversation on the black poor that has been called the most important debate in black America since the historic debate between Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois. Dyson’s New York Times bestselling April 4, 1968: Martin Luther King Jr.’s Death and How It Changed America, has been hailed by the Washington Post as “an excellent sociological primer on institutionalized 17

racism in America.” His latest book is Can You Hear Me Now? The Inspiration, Wisdom and Insight of Michael Eric Dyson. Not only has Dyson taught at some of the nation’s most prestigious universities – including Brown, Chapel Hill, Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania – but his influence has carried far beyond the academy into prisons and bookstores, political conventions and union halls, and church sanctuaries and lecture stages across the world. Dyson has appeared on nearly every major media outlet, including The Today Show, Nightline, O’Reilly Factor, The Tavis Smiley Show and Real Time with Bill Maher – and he has cemented his star appeal on such shows as Rap City, Def Poetry Jam and The Colbert Report. He is also a contributing editor of Time magazine. Dyson’s powerful work has won him legions of admirers and has made him what the Washington Post terms a “superstar professor.” His fearless and fiery oratory led the Chronicle of Higher Education to declare that with his rhetorical gifts he “can rock classroom and chapel alike.” Dyson’s eloquent writing inspired Vanity Fair magazine to describe him as “one of the most graceful and lucid intellectuals writing on race and politics today.” Dr. Dyson is presently University Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University. His legendary rise – from welfare father to Princeton Ph.D., from church pastor to college professor, from a factory worker who didn’t start college until he was 21 to a figure who has become what writer Naomi Wolf terms “the ideal public intellectual of our time” – may help explain why author Nathan McCall simply calls Dyson “a street fighter in suit and tie.”

Carlos McMillan Fuentes is a 23-year-old singer, songwriter, and pianist. He is a May 2011 graduate of the University of North Carolina- Greensboro, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition. Largely selftaught on the piano, Fuentes demonstrated an affinity for performance and composition in middle school. Upon enrolling at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, he continued to develop his skills under the direction of acclaimed composers Alejandra Rutty and Mark Engebretson and pianist Joseph DiPiazza. As a pianist, his composition style is influenced largely by Romantic and Contemporary composers-his favorites being Chopin, Brahms, and Scriabin. He continues to create new and innovative songs for voice as well as piano, chamber, and orchestral works. Carlos has also had the opportunity to write compositions for specific performers. Through this process he strives to find new ways to bring unique and beautiful compositional voices to the repertoire. Carlos is in a small group of individuals having a condition called synesthesia, a neurologically-based condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. For Carlos musical notes and patterns are associated with a spectrum of colors. Carlos has used this as a compositional tool and is frequently finding new ways to expand his harmonic and tonal languages. He is also a prolific lyricist and songwriter, and has written numerous works in varying styles for his own tenor voice. In the fall of 2010 he premiered his Concerto for solo piano with an orchestra of his peers, and plans to continue work on a choral Symphony and his first opera, Hatshepsut, in the coming months.

Community Leadership Award Debra L. Lee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BET Holdings, Inc, is a prominent area businesswoman who has humbly served the AfricanAmerican community. Lee, who holds a law degree and a master's in public policy from Harvard, left the Steptoe & Johnson corporate law firm to join the newly-formed BET in 1986. Prior to becoming CEO of BET, Debra served as BET’s President and Chief Operating Officer for 10 years where she guided the company to consistent increases in viewership, revenue and earnings. She played a key role in taking BET public in 1991, making it the first African-American company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. To her credit, Lee has taken measures to improve BET by taking a stand against degrading images, going so far as to boldly ban certain videos by popular artists. Under Lee’s leadership, BET has been reinvigorated and has expanded. Lee has served on the board of directors for numerous companies and organizations, including National Cable & Telecommunications Association, the Ad Council, the National Cable Television Association, Marriot, Eastman Kodak Company, and Revlon. She has been a director of the Washington Gas Light Company since 2000.

College Bound salutes Ms. Lee for her accomplishments and her significant contributions. We are pleased to present the 2011 Community Leadership Award to Ms. Debra Lee.

Hall of Fame Award College Bound

Sol and Diane Pelavin, former President/CEO and Senior Vice President of the American Institutes for Research, respectively, began their professional careers as educators. Today, they are two of the most highly skilled and well respected professionals in the field of social science research. Sol founded the educational research firm Pelavin Associates, Inc., which later merged with AIR in 1994. Under his leadership, AIR has become one of the largest and most respected behavioral and social science research organizations, with offices in more than 30 locations in the United States and around the world. Sol served as one of the lead researchers in the ground-breaking study “Changing the Odds.” The study investigated, for both poor and minority students, how demographic characteristics, college aspirations, and high school courses affected college attendance and college completion. This report prompted the nation to work towards better preparing minority students for college. Sol emphasized the importance of a familial atmosphere at AIR and helped build a highly qualified, cohesive staff that strives to improve people’s lives. Sol holds advanced degrees from Stanford University and the University of Chicago. Diane has been a trailblazer in the educational research field. While working with AIR, she directed a number of educational research projects, including congressionally mandated research involving vocational rehabilitation, studies of programs serving people with disabilities and various school improvement efforts. She has worked tirelessly to improve people’s lives and well-being, especially the disadvantaged. Diane obtained a B.A. in English from Southern Illinois University and an M.S. in Social Science and Education from California State University, San Jose. The Pelavins form a dynamic team that has made significant contributions to the field of education, helping AIR become the ‘gold standard’ of social science research. College Bound salutes them for not only their great professional achievements but for their unconditional support of College Bound. We are proud to award them the 2011 Hall of Fame Award.
