KOREY PARROTT | YEAR 3 + 4

Philadelphia Military Academy

KOREY PARROTT was born in North Carolina, America. He lives in North Philadelphia and is a sophomore at Philadelphia Military Academy. He enjoys honoring the military uniform that his dad preceded him in wearing. The parents of the Youth Advisory Council allow their children to go to an adventure or field trip - as long as Korey is there. He is trustworthy, opinionated and a natural leader. Korey will soon be going back to his home state of North Carolina, where he will continue to follow his passions of joining the Army and designing and engineering automobiles. What's Korey's favorite thing about being a member of the YAC? "Being able to freely speak my mind."

 

Our first field trip of school year 2015-2016 was to Washington, DC for the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March and the Justice for All rally. For most of the YAC - including Korey - this was the first time at a rally. They decided to interview random rally-goers to better understand what was going on, and what the people were thinking. Here are some selfies from it all:

This man is a native Washingtonian and was very young when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led the March for Civil Rights in 1963. He attended the rally this day to show his unwavering solidarity with the poor and all people of color.
