Heroes Don’t Quit Essay Competition

Winners of the 2008–2009 Heroes Don’t Quit Essay Competition enjoy a luncheon held in their honor at Sweet Georgia Brown Restaurant. Out of the 113 students who entered the contest, 29 winners were selected. Every DPS High School is represented with this year’s winners. While at the luncheon students received praise from General Superintendent Dr. Connie Calloway, Mr. Tarence Wheeler from the Derrick Coleman Foundation, and Mr. Henry McClendon, Director of Education with New Detroit, Inc. In addition to the special luncheon, the heroes will be paired with an adult mentor who will serve as a guide in their lives helping to ensure success.
