A 2017 graduate of Eastern Senior High School in Washington, D.C., Horsley has spent the past school year working in a pre-K classroom at Neval Thomas Elementary School as part of the Leading Men Fellowship, a project of The Literacy Lab designed to attract young black males into early-childhood education and support them as role models in their communities. 

‘We want them to see this as a college and career pathway,’ said Ivan C. Douglas Jr., a program manager at The Literacy Lab.”
