Khalil Bridges, recent alumni of Renaissance Academy High School in Baltimore City, was recently featured in the Washington Post article, Coming of age in a city coming apart .
Khalil has overcome so much on his journey to graduate from high school and we are so proud of him.
His goals for the next year are to find a job and to attend community college. The funds raised on this page will cover his tuition, books and supplies, transportation, and living expenses.
In the words of Principal Rowe Khalil is a student that has “demonstrated evolvement and resiliency....who stepped forward to fight for Renaissance’s survival by speaking in Annapolis, at the White House and in New Mexico, and who was recently selected to serve on the Baltimore Youth Commission".
