Bullying Has Run Rampant for Prince George’s County Schools

This year has been a particularly tough year for Prince George’s County Public Schools when it comes to bullying.  There have been stories upon stories about the struggle combating this problem.  Most recently, there was a story of a boy, Darrell Forrest, at Friendly High School, who was physically, verbally and emotionally abused by a group of students at his school.  Since the incident, his mother has taken him out of school and is looking for a solution after several attempts to get the school’s administration to handle it.  Last year, there was also a well publicized incident at Bowie High School, where the bullies’ attack on one student actually became a Facebook video, and resulted in the parents also removing their child from the school.

The Patriots 4th Annual visit to the Blacks at Microsoft Minority Student Day

The Patriots 4th Annual visit to the Blacks at Microsoft Minority Student Day

Friday, February 25, 2011, was a fun-filled day for the Patriots members that joined Rodney Beverly and Danna Jennings at the 20th Annual Blacks at Microsoft Minority Student Day.  Mr. Beverly is also a Member of the Patriots Board of Directors.  

During a Mix and Mingle breakfast our members enjoyed the opportunity to network with Microsoft representatives who encouraged them to learn about the opportunities that the field of technology can bring.  Overall, the objective of Microsoft's Minority Student Day was to provide a mechanism for students to learn about emerging technologies that Microsoft is developing for the present and near future, plus their ability to one day possibly be the creator of that technology.
