GPA students hear stories about their school's namesake
 
Students at Gordon Parks Academy got to hear about their school’s namesake from a special guest. David Parks, son of Gordon Parks, talked with the students about his father. He said his father always encouraged him to be the best and to follow his dreams, and he encouraged the students to do the same.

He showed a clip from his father’s film, The Learning Tree, which showed how the views of African-American students pursuing a college career in the 1930’s were different than they are today.

“You all can go to college and I challenge all of you to go to college,” said Parks.
Some students were selected to receive an autographed copy of The Learning Tree, written by Gordon Parks.
