Braxton Smith, a 9th grader with Josephine Dobbs Early College at North Carolina Central University and a member of Movement of Youth, recently received the President Education Award for Outstanding Academic Excellence. This award is signed by the President of the United States, Barack Obama and was awarded to only three students at Braxton's school. He was also honored by Dr. Eric Becoats, Superintendent of Durham Public Schools during a recent art reception featuring works of art from various students in the school district. Also another piece of Braxton's art work was on display at the North Carolina State Fair. Movement of Youth would like to applaud this mentee's artistic and academic achievement.
