We are searching for 20 young men in 7th-9th grade to participate in our new Champions Academy program. 

Champions Academy is a leadership program led by Corey Grant, Jeremy Edwards, LaDecker Johnson and Bobby Nix. They hope to to provide an environment that promotes values and character that enables young men to be faithful husbands, loving fathers and productive members of our community. 

Each meeting will consist of a meal, an activity, an inspirational message by a local community leader and instructions on a useful skill (like changing a tire or writing a thank you note). A to the conclusion of the 10-week program participants will complete a service project and enjoy a fun trip.

We already have commitments to speak from leaders like Lt. Colonel Rich Peace, an F-16 fighter pilot, and the Operations Support Squadron Commander for the Tuskegee Airmen and Opelika’s own State representative Jeremy Gray.
