8th graders in the National Junior Honor Society at Bailey Middle School visited 1st graders at Forest today!

Less than 2 weeks ago, he was performing at the GRAMMY’s. Today, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of the legendary hip hop group Run DMC, returned to Bailey Middle School to give an empowering speech to our 7th graders about the importance of school, ignoring bullies, and pushing through adversity to be great! Following his speech, Principal Rob Bohan presented Darryl with a check for his foundation, 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙁𝙚𝙡𝙞𝙭 𝙊𝙧𝙜𝙖𝙣𝙞𝙯𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣. The foundation enriches the lives of children who are in foster care. Bailey raised $740 by hosting a ‘Hat Day’ in which students could pay $1 to wear a hat during school, and by selling a ‘Bailey Eagles’ hoodie to teachers and staff that resembled the Run DMC logo.
