Tracy Mourning visits Hallandale Adult Community Center
Mrs. Mourning speaks with one of our students after the event
On Oct. 2, 2014 Tracy Wilson Mourning, founder of Honey Shine Mentoring Organization and wife of NBA great, Alonzo Mourning, visited Hallandale Adult Community Center to speak with students participating in one of the school’s four mentoring programs.
Mrs. Mourning shared her inspiring story of resilience and perseverance. She told the audience of young adults, “We all have a story; we all have the power to influence how it evolves and how it ends.”
Mrs. Mourning was amazed by the many programs housed at Hallandale Adult Community Center: the alternative high school for students in grades seventh -12, the eighth grade academy program, the GED ® and ESOL programs. She had special words for each of the special populations, words that empowered students to “know their worth.”
The audience members included Broward Schools Police Chief Anthony C. Williams, Dr. Valerie Wanza, Cadre 11 Director, business partners and mentors. The event was sponsored, in part by Ramona Hall, school partner and CEO of Phillips Consulting Group.
