The Dream & The Hope Lifts Deonte Bridges To First Valedictorian In A Decade

First Obama, now Deonte Bridges. While others like Ludacris, Lil Wayne and TI were spitting rhymes, committing crimes, and yes doing time, Deonte Bridges was hitting the books at Atlanta’s Booker T. Washington High School.
Recognized as the first male Valedictorian in a decade, Deonte’s dedication to his education is beginning to pay off.

Soaring high and sometimes emotional about his accomplishment through difficult if not almost impossible times, Deonte Bridges moved the audience with his Valedictorian speech before fellow graduates, faculty, staff and parents at Booker T. Washington High School’s graduation ceremony on May 28, 2010, at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center.

Take a listen to his speech and spread this inspiration to others.
