The remarkable performance of Urban Prep students earned Mr. King numerous awards and recognitions, including People Magazine’s “Hero of the Year”, ABC World News “Person of the Week”, Ebony Magazine’s “Power 100” list, BET’s “Shine A Light Award,” as well as features on Good Morning America and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
“As charter schools continue to grow throughout the state, it’s important that we make sure the focus of the movement continues to be high quality education options for our children,” said Ms. Roemer Shirley. “Part of that is hearing from people like Tim King who have proven beyond a doubt that, when given the right educational environment, every child can succeed. There are always lessons to be learned from success, and I’m very much looking forward to what Mr. King has to say.”
