Legacy Video Series Unveiling with Theresa A. Manuel, First Florida Female Olympian
What an honor it was to highlight the legacy of Theresa A. Manuel, the first African-American woman to represent Florida in the Olympics, in our Legacy Video Series unveiling. With a generous sponsorship from the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners, with special thanks to Comm. Les Miller, this Legacy Video Series was developed in partnership with Kerrick Williams Photography, Sula Too LLC (Ersula Odom-McLemore), and seven youth participants of Computer Mentors. Kerrick Williams’ staff trained and assisted CMG youth who were engaged at every step of the process and learned employable skills as well as a new appreciation for their community by working on these stories.
These videos will be available for utilization by the Hillsborough County school district, by several Hillsborough County library branches and will be displayed online by CMG and other community sites.
Computer Mentors Group currently has 80 youth enrolled in Information Technology and video training as part of its STEM Corps High School Program. The program is a continuation of the Youth Computer Training program that CMG has successfully sustained for the last 18 years.
