The Move Foward Thurgood Marshall NAACP High School Chapter was the brainchild of LTC (R) Claudia L. Mason, Senior Army Instructor, Thurgood Marshall STEM High School. She asked Derrick L. Foward, President of the Dayton Unit NAACP to assist by paying for 25 memberships to establish the organization. The Move Foward Thurgood Marshall NAACP High School Chapter was first announced during the Thurgood Marshall Army JROTC Military Ball on March 14, 2015 where Foward served as the keynote speaker. Foward spoke about his longtime vision of implementing a high school chapter of the NAACP in the Dayton community since first being elected President. Foward asked Mason if she would lead the Move Foward Thurgood Marshall NAACP High School Chapter as the Advisor. Mason accepted. The official kick-off meeting was held on October 20, 2015 to heighten the interest of the students. The organizing committee was formed on October 27, 2015. The organizing meeting was held on October 30, 2015 and the Move Foward Thurgood Marshall NAACP High School Chapter was officially chartered by the NAACP Board of Directors effective February 20, 2016. They held their first official meeting at Thurgood Marshall STEM High School on Wednesday, March 3, 2016. They started with 25 members. Its primary objective is to focus on political apathy, lack of knowledge of civil rights history and poor decision making amongst teenagers /young adults.

President's Spotlight

Derrick Foward"Move Forward With Foward"

Fellow Citizens:

Achieving constitutional justice in America isn't easy, but with your help, we will be one step closer. The unemployment rates across the country are staggering for people of African American descent. In almost every City in the these United States of America, the unemployment rate for African Americans is almost doubled the national average. We need to hold every employer accountable to the following mandate as outlined in the United States Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be Self-Evident, that All Men Are Created Equal, that they are endowed by their Creator, with certain Unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." Ask yourself, if all men are created equal, how do disparities exist? "We the People..." expect equality!!!

"Our Success Is Influenced By Your Actions (DLF)"

Your community servant,

Derrick L. Foward
