E! News must be doing Terrence J good. The sometimes actor/model turned E! News host plopped down $100 Gs to his alma mater–North Carolina A&T State University.

In exchange, the Journalism and Mass Communication dept. declared April 24th will forever be ‘Terrence J Day’ on the Greensboro, North Carolina campus. Cool. Wonder if that includes a master key…

Not sure, but it definitely warranted some encouraging words from the guest of honor for the soon-to-be graduating class: “don’t follow your dreams, chase them.”

On Terrence’s Instagram page, he shared the $100,000 endowment check was payback for the school taking a chance on him when no one else did. In four years, he graduated with a 3.6 GPA, became student body president and Omega Psi Phi fraternity member.

This is step 1 in doing more, not just at my school but for communities around the country where young people feel forgotten and unheard. I don’t have all the answers-FAR from it. But my goal is to inspire others to give back-in any way-just as I’ve been inspired to do the same.

When I was 17 the world felt cold and lonely. But I didn’t need handcuffs- I needed a hand. Thanks to all that have helped me on my path.

Amen. Amen. Amen. Let the church say amen.

In keeping with the empowering youth theme, Real Housewives of Atlanta star and radio personality Claudia Jordan visited North Clayton Middle School yesterday to talk about the dangers of bullying.

Interesting topic given the antics that go on on her reality show, or even the reunion for that matter.

Nonetheless, this is what the newest housewife said at the #BullyingIsNotHot event hosted by her radio station:

“I want to encourage you all to be responsible. You never know how your one comment may push someone over the top. You never know what someone is going through.”

Very true. Let’s hope the message is echoed to the other housewives because actions always speak louder than words. And you know kids watch those actions like an on-duty crossing guard observes cars.

Welcome Back!! Seattle Seahawk’s Richard Sherman Returns to Alma Mater

Whoever said you could never go home again never met Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman. He made a surprise stop at his old high school –Compton Dominguez High–to give the grind hard and reap the benefits spiel.

May sound cliché but he did beat the odds in getting out of South Central, getting accepted to Stanford and really crushing statistics entering the NFL. So, listen up kids.

According to LA Times, Sherman praises his parents for giving him a good foundation by being hard-working and supportive. Not everyone has it like that, unfortunately. Sherman is sympathetic to that, saying that’s how many fall through the cracks. However he still suggests being responsible for your choices.

It’s one of many visits the cornerback has made to his old stomping grounds, but a first for tackling Trig problems on the blackboard. Brave man…to be fair he got an assist from a kid  I’m guessing studies complex math problems like Sherman does those X and O’s.

After sprinting out the classroom, Sherman held a Q&A session in the school gym and took selfies with the teens. Best. School. Day.Ever. Unless you’re a Patriots fan.

The mentoring meetup will be televised as a commercial, so keep your eyes peeled.
