On Friday, January 20th 2012, Mr. Bernie Foster, President of the Portland Skanner News Paper, came to Miller-McCoy Academy for Mathematics and Business to speak to our class of urban males. He shared advice on how we could start our own business especially a newspaper company. Mr. Foster encouraged us to reach our goals by being prepared with a good education. We were inspired by his success. He spoke to us about how to present ourselves as well-spoken, well-groomed, and well- informed young men.
The young men at Miller-McCoy Academy for Mathematics and Business would like to thank Mr. Foster for making time in his schedule to share his success story with us. In an era where there is often a lack of African-American role models, Mr. Forster showed his concern for our success by his visit to our class in New Orleans, Louisiana.
