Black Men in Education


Hailing from Wilmington, North Carolina, I am a 2005 graduate of THE Illustrious North Carolina Central University with a degree in Elementary Education.  I enjoyed 12 years working and serving in the classroom as a 4th and 5th grade teacher in 3 different schools, Carrboro Elementary, Southwest Elementary, and Kestrel Heights Elementary School.  Recently I’ve gone full time with my business Greater Promise Elite Learning Center and my non-profit, Donald Deneil Harrison Scholarship Foundation.   It has been an experience that I would not take back for anything as I am able to reach more young people than I ever could being in the four walls of a classroom.  The hope is that we can continue to grow to reach even more young people and provide more services for any academic need!  The hashtag #CANTstopWONTstop we use is more of a lifestyle that we hope others adopt as we continue on with this journey.  We are just trying to be the change that we wish to see in the world!
