Brooks Bunch '16 Road Trip -Day 1

Brooks Bunch 2016 has started out with a resounding win. All of the students and parents met with the chaperones, security and administrative personnel on Sunday evening at 6:30pm. Everyone got packed and situated and said goodbye to their loved ones. Early to rise on Monday morning for a 630am bag check in at TIA. We departed Tampa for Atlanta and arrived at 10am joining our tour bus for the next four days. We arrived at CNN Plaza/Omni Hotel which will be our home for 2 nights. After a great lunch we toured CNN Studios and discovered the massive empire. Then it was on to college. We arrived at Spelman and Morehouse for our respective tours and received a lot of valuable information and opportunities offered not only by the two but also with Clarke Atlanta University. After a long afternoon and getting freshened up it was time for dinner at the hotel to meet our 3 speakers for the evening and what an amazing evening of wisdom for the students. Our speakers included, Tanya Hairston-Whitner an attorney with Concessions International, Patrick Desamours with Edward Jones and Warrick Dunn former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, Atlanta Falcon, and President and Founder of Warrick Dunn Charities. <——More Pics Here!!
