Keon Williams

Keon, 15, is filled with antsy energy. During our summer program, I caught him walking around the library spinning a basketball on his finger when he was supposed to be working on a project. Keon carries himself with an air of assurance. When asked why he wants to go into the construction industry, he matter-of-factly said he’s into it already, working weekends with an older relative. He says he’s good at it and that’s what he plans to do-end of story.-S. Brown
