Marcella Fulmore started Powerful African-American Males About Success and will accept her award March 14 in Richmond.
When she started at Robert E. Lee High School as a social worker ten years ago, Marcella Fulmore probably didn't know the impact she would have on many of her students. After speaking with African-American males about their plans for college and finding that they could use a little direction, Fulmore started the mentoring program Powerful African-American Males About Success (PAAMAS). "I had a lot of students who would come and talk to me about college options. A lot of African-American males would say things like, 'I'm going to play in the NBA' or 'I'm going to play ball in college,'" she said. "Then I started looking at their GPAs and ask, 'Well do you play on the basketball team here?" Many of them weren't on any of the school's sports …

South County wins boys' and girls' races; Lee runner posts top individual time.
South County Secondary School’s cross country teams swept a weekday ‘quad meet’ at Occoquan Park on Wednesday. Four teams competed in the meet: Annandale High School, Lee High School, T.C.
