H1GHER.org

Good morning, I’ve had the H1GHER LEARNING website up and running for a couple of months now. I forgot to tell you that. Visit H1GHER.org to stay connected to what we’re doing. Thank you for your support thus far! We’re just getting started!

I just wanted to let you know that the new H1GHER LEARNING website it up. It’s a new meeting place for information on the development of the brand and a way for you to keep up with my journey of becoming a Non-Profit organization.


Just so you know, the website DOES feature a blog and I’ve finally finished my first post. It’s called “Chaining Day” and features the smart 4th grader at my school that I was able to reward with some Jordans. Check out www.H1GHER.org or just click the link in my bio. #H1GHERoverEVERYTHING

In the words of one @realcoleworld, today is “Chaining Day” for a couple hard working students at my school. For the uninitiated, I’m starting a #NonProfit organization that will reward at-risk students with sneakers for their academic success. Mr. Middleton (4th grade) will be getting the Jordan Vs and Mr. Jackson (8th grade) will be getting the red Rookies. I’ll take pictures of the actual sneaker gifting when it happens today but MOST IMPORTANTLY, I want to shout out @_MondayMusic and Phil Walker (someone tag Phil if he’s on IG) for making these donations and believing in the cause even before the paperwork is completed!


If you would like to share some encouraging words to these two students, please do so in the comments. It’d be my absolute pleasure to pass along your praises! #H1GHERoverEVERYTHING #ChainingDay

Had a very INSIGHTFUL talk with a lawyer yesterday about the formation of this non-profit. Sheesh! I thought we were at the end of the road but in reality we’re just starting. I’ll keep y’all updated of course. “Anything worth having…”, right?…

In the meantime, if you have donated (whether financially or in-kind), I’d like to hear from YOU! Please answer this question: “WHY DO YOU BELIEVE IN H1GHER LEARNING’S MISSION TO REWARD AT-RISK STUDENTS FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS WITH SNEAKERS?” Either leave your response under this picture, DM me your answer, OR email it to me directly (geth1gherlearning@gmail.com). NOTE: If you submit an answer, it may be used on the developing H1GHER LEARNING website. Thanks in advance! #H1GHERoverEVERYTHING #Charleston #Sneakers #NiceKicks #TheShoeGame #NonProfit #DefendTheBridge

South Carolina’s state flag was ranked as the 10th best designed state or provincial flag in North America by the North American Vexillological Association in 2001. And for what it’s worth, it’s NOT on @ComplexMag’s 2012 list of the “Worst 25 State Flags”. I finally got a state flag belt and this Summer I’m going to reach uber, maximum Homer level by getting the Crescent Moon and Palmetto tree tatted on me. #DumSpiroSpero

I find inspiration every time I go for a walk…

#TBT May 12, 2010 | Peezo aka @seanpressleyphotography had just gotten his new camera & wanted to take some test shots—I volunteered. The image you see is one of the fruits of our labor. Now Sean is too big for me to get that pro-bono work outta him haha but in all seriousness, Sean turned his hobby into a business. We should all be so lucky. Much respect to Peezo! #DefendTheBridge #CharlestonSticksTogether
