MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One local group got up a little bit early to make a difference in our students’ lives.

Dressed to the nines, the gentlemen lined the sidewalk leading up to KIPP Memphis Preparatory Middle School.

As students walked up, they held out their hands for a quick high-five.

Some cheered, while others just welcomed students back to school after a relaxing Spring Break.

It’s something the Motivational Men Morning Huddle call #MotivationalMorning and the main goal is to be a positive image for the young people in our city.

Two other schools have since expressed an interest in doing something similar for their students.
