So ✨much ✨ CYD ✨ magic ✨ in ✨ this ✨ photo! Shanay, CYD ‘03 alum, visits our summer camp held at Boyd Elementary. Which is fun, BUT did you know that we first met Shanay when she was 8 years old and attending Boyd Elementary?! AND that after she graduated college she came back to TEACH at Boyd?! AND that when she taught at Boyd all these CYD rising 10th graders in this picture with her were in her 2nd grade class? Yes. CYD magic is real #fullcircle #inspire #blackexcellence #giveback
Today, these children are rising middle schoolers! #TBT to when they began CYD when they were super cute and silly 3rd graders!
Lanarion Norwood Jr, CYD Alum ‘16 and Morehouse ‘20, gave a moving speech to 5th graders at William Boyd Elementary during their Promotion Ceremony and Awards Day. We first met Lanarion at Boyd Elementary when he was in the 3rd grade! CYD is super proud that he continues to give back to the community and of the young man he is becoming. For the full speech, visit our YouTube channel! #cydfamily #cydstrong #blackexcellence #fullcircle #inspire.
