Meeting of Great Minds


Ken Stiggers

Big Roscoe: "Boneqweesha Jones, Little Momma Roscoe and I had a meeting of great minds during Hot Wing Happy Hour at Clubb Chicken Wing last week. We contemplated starting an annual summer education program for citizens of the Ghetto Science Community. Little Momma Roscoe suggested that we do something similar to what Booker T. Washington did in Tuskegee, Ala. To motivate us even more, she broke out into a very passionate soliloquy that sounded like the theme to the 'Six Million Dollar Man' television show."

Little Momma Roscoe: "Big Roscoe and Boneqweesha, we can strengthen our community through education and self-determination. We have the resources, experience and technology to rebuild and refine our neighborhood. We have the capability to make our community greater than it was before—better, stronger, faster."

Big Roscoe: "After Little Momma Roscoe calmed down, Boneqweesha and I agreed to follow in the footsteps of Booker T. Washington and start the Clubb Chicken Wing and Hair Did University School of Cosmetology and Vocational Education Summertime Career Development Institute.

"All of the training, education and counseling will take place at the Clubb Chicken Wing Multi-Purpose Complex next to Clubb Chicken Wing. Our qualified instructors will teach various trade skills and academics such as computer technology, software application, writing, math, science, reading comprehension, critical thinking, etc. Also, guidance counselors will provide students with helpful career advice and job-search assistance.

"At the Summertime Career Development Institute, learning to survive in uncertain and troubled times never stops. Classes begin right now."
