Merlene Davis: Black Males Working program provides a model for success

Fifteen high school seniors walked to the podium one by one donning caps etched with the initials of a college or university they plan to attend as the 200 in attendance cheered. You'd think the young men were announcing their intentions to take their athletic skills to a top NCAA school. Instead, the celebration honored young black men who will be attending a college or university based on their academic prowess. Wow.
