No one in Hip Hop boasts a more impressive resume than Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs who truly embodies the “no limit” concept. After starting his career in music; he expanded his brand which now includes: fashion, spirits, film production, TV (Revolt), and now education after announcing the opening of the Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School in his beloved Harlem, New York this fall.
“I want to impact the lives of young people in my community and build future leaders! The first step is offering access to a quality education!”
The school will be overseen by Steve Perry, the founder of Capital Prep Magnet School in Hartford, Connecticut in 2005.
Danita Jones of Orlando, Florida has been named principal.
Combs proclaimed this as “A Dream Come True,” and his passion for education was quite evident during his exuberant commencement address at Howard University in 2014. There he was awarded an honorary doctorate which he cited as his “highest honor yet.”
The man with the Midas touch added, “You can’t get to where you’re going without knowing where you come from!!”
I couldn’t agree more! “To those whom much is given, much is expected,” and this will certainly bold well for the kids in this community.
Great job Sean Combs and Best wishes to faculty and students!
