On Wednesday, September 2, three New Orleans high school students, selected from The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation’s (TMJF) Project R.E.W.A.R.D.S. (Reinforcing Education With Activities Recreation And Developmental Supports) program at College Track New Orleans, received the opportunity of a lifetime when they attended the premiere of the ‘The Perfect Guy,’ at the WGA theater in Beverly Hills, California. Invited by Philadelphia writer and producer Tommy Oliver and sponsored by TMJF, Jourdan Hannah (11th grade), Matthew Weber Jr. (12th grade), and Roycelyn Wise (12th grade) walked the red carpet with Oliver and his wife Codie hours after an intimate meet and greet over breakfast.
“Our Project R.E.W.A.R.D.S. students work incredibly hard, and Tommy Oliver offered them an opportunity to experience what happens when that hard work pays off,” said TMJF Founder Malcolm Jenkins and Philadelphia Eagles Free Safety. “The Foundation was excited to make this a reality for them.”
While in California, the students also had the opportunity to tour the campus of UCLA!
