Tyrone Marshall's 'immeasurable' impact on north Omaha kids starts with the little things

By Erin Grace, World-Herald

Tyrone Marshall moves around the 3-point line like the second hand of a watch. Tick. Swoosh! Tick. Swoosh! Tick. Swoosh!

It’s a casual game of three-point for the handful of teenage boys playing with Marshall. For the Urban League’s director of education and youth development, though, it’s work.

Empowerment Goals: 

Bria Beckley seems like a typical college student: tired, frazzled perhaps, but determined. Scratch the surface and it becomes clear that Beckley’s path to Monroe Community College was a long and bumpy one.

Empowerment Goals: 

As a leader on my campus, I have had the opportunity to work with the BEEP Program in 2012 and in 2013 at Hampton University. Interacting with several BEEPers has inspired and influenced me to become active with the National Urban League upon graduation. I have gained new wisdom and insight through the BEEP program. Students who attend the BEEP Program gain a priceless learning experience by interacting with top corporate executives who look like them.
