As a salute to the Detroit Public School League’s wealth of outstanding talent, the DPS Office of Athletics will present the third annual PSL Proud Strong Learners of the Year Awards, sponsored by Detroit area McDonald’s, Wednesday from 5 p.m.- 7 p.m. at the Marcus Garvey Academy Harambee Center, 2301 Van Dyke, near Kercheval, in Detroit.
The weekly honorees were cited for their achievements during the fall, winter and spring sports seasons. The program will culminate with one boy and one girl honoree being ceremoniously named this year’s Proud Strong Learners of the Year.
Last year’s top recipients were King High running back Dennis Norfleet, a freshman starting kick returner this past fall for the University of Michigan, and Pershing High basketball player Caprice Dennis, a University of Miami freshman guard.
The honorees, parents, coaches and school supporters are invited to this media recognition event.
