APS teacher and alum Matt Westmoreland speaks to Vals and Sals

You may recall Matt Westmoreland from our Atlanta Educator profile on the Carver Early College teacher and Grady High grad (Class of 2006). Here we get to watch him speaking to the valedictorians, salutatorians and “STAR” students during the annual breakfast honoring their work, hosted by Georgia Power and featuring APS Superintendent Dr. Beverly L. Hall. It’s a moving speech that touches on a racial divide that challenges the city in general and our education system in particular. Westmoreland left them with a touching reminder: As you embark on an amazing college adventure, don’t forget your home. He clearly didn’t.

Enjoy.
