The 3rd Annual Institute of Rhymes Male Summit was amazing. Thank you to the young men of The New Standard Academy sports program as well as Coach Artie Smith and Mr. Green for coming out. The young men had an amazing time building character and learning how to invest in themselves. This conference is always a positive, motivating, and dynamic event that shatters norms of low expectations and complacency and instead seeks to push our students far into the realm of greatness. Thank you John Rhymes for all you do for the young men of Flint but more so for your service as board president at The New Standard. We are very proud that a visionary like yourself is there to help lead our students.
