Shining Star Gala

We were excited to celebrate our 15th anniversary at the Shining Star Gala on Thursday, May 5th. The evening honored our founders, family, and friends who have made Thurgood Marshall Academy’s 15 years a success. Our students led classroom demonstrations, and we presented David Grosso, Councilmember At-Large, with the Warrior Award for his longstanding support of our school and his public service work and commitment to education equity.

In this moving and inspiring video debuted at the gala, TMA alumni share their stories of triumph and college success. Both Hakeem, a metropolitan police officer, and Quanisha, a school teacher, are realizing TMA’s mission – to prepare students to succeed in college and to actively engage in our democratic society.
