There are too many negative stories about our young people in Philadelphia. We decided we wanted to change the narrative. Every chance we get, we spotlight young people doing great things. Tamir Harper is one of those amazing people.
In the Fall, Tamir will attend American University in DC on a FULL scholarship. He will spend this Summer working alongside State Rep Joanna McClinton. At National Signing Day here in Philly, Tamir was surprised when former First Lady Michelle Obama introduced him on stage.
