Gary Comer College Prep student group was one of 15 out of 1,500 teams of student filmmakers selected to premiere a clip at the White House Student Film Festival and meet with President Barack Obama.

The students’ entry was a hip-hop music video highlighting the school’s unique C.H.A.M.P.S. mentoring program (Culturally Helping And Making Positive Success.) C.H.A.M.P.S. is an initiative that aims to bring three "E"s — education, empowerment and exposure — to young African-American men at the school, providing them with tools they need to excel in life.
