Spotlight on King of the Year!


The African American Male Achievement (AAMA) project, led by Brother Malik here at RHS, is an outstanding program that works within OUSD to establish systems and spaces that guarantee the success of African American male students both inside and out of academia. Congratulations to Trevor Walton, a 4th-grader in Ms. Mahoney’s class who is this year’s recipient of the AAMA King of the Year Award!

Trevor earned this honor by actively engaging with the program and its goals, taking initiative in classes, and embodying the program’s values of responsibility, trust, and brotherhood. “I learned there are lots of steps to becoming a King,” says Trevor, “and it’s really helpful to come to a class where you are taught how to do it and also have fun.” Trevor’s leadership in AAMA carries over to his academics and social interactions as well. He said he works hard to challenge himself at school. “I was really proud of myself for doing that,” he smiles. Thank you, Trevor, for the passion and commitment you bring to RHS!
