With education seemingly taking a backseat with so many African American boys these days, who yearn to play professional sports, become a well-known rapper or the next Reality TV star, its refreshing to find a diamond in the rough like fourteen-year old child prodigy Stephen Stafford, II, a junior at Morehouse College. The editor, who is a graduate of the all-male institution, had an opportunity to hear his fellow Morehouse Brother deliver an inspiring speech during a Youth Day Event at one of Atlanta's local churches. Not only is Stafford super smart, but his parents keep him grounded, requiring that their son speak to youth in schools, churches and community organizations in hopes that they will choose education as a means to better their lives.
By the way, the child prodigy's mom, Michelle Brown-Stafford, has her own website designed for parents to take an active role in their child's education.
