The Urban Prep Creed

We believe.
We are the young men of Urban Prep.
We are college bound.
We are exceptional-not because we say it, but because we work hard at it.
We will not falter in the face of any obstacle placed before us.
We are dedicated, committed and focused.
We never succumb to mediocrity, uncertainty or fear.
We never fail because we never give up.
We make no excuses.
We choose to live honestly, nonviolently and honorably.
We respect ourselves and, in doing so, respect all people.
We have a future for which we are accountable.
We have a responsibility to our families, community and world.
We are our brothers' keepers.
We believe in ourselves.
We believe in each other.
We believe in Urban Prep.

During all the inauguration happenings...what stood out the most to me was the Urban Prep Academies Creed. I must thank Coach Charrise and her blog for reminding me to go check out the school website. Powerful powerful words. I used this in my talk to the Young Woman the other night regarding Personal Progress. I added some phrases, and deleted some others for the purpose of my talk but wanted to share this creed with my blog buddies. No excuses is my gym mantra. I seriously say it over and over in my head when I exercise.
