Braylon Powell, a junior member of Project Greer Street at East High School in Denver, has been selected from an international pool of candidates for the prestigious Global Sports and Entertainment Business Academy ("GSEBA") summer program at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. The Academy provides the students with insight into the fascinating, fast paced, and often high-profile sports and entertainment industries.
The program features instruction from world-class faculty and renowned Los Angeles area professionals from across the sports and entertainment industries, including law, technology, management, and marketing. GSEBA includes workshops on college admission, career and professional development, leadership, diversity, multi-culturalism, and negotiation. Past speakers at GSEBA have included Roger Goodell (NFL Commissioner), Dan Reed (Head of Sports, Facebook), Karen Brodkin (EVP, Endeavor), Brett O'Brien (GM, Gatorade), Rob King (ESPN), Jeff Gewirtz (Chief Legal Officer, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment), Tony Gonzalez (Pro Football Hall of Fame Tight End), among many others. Braylon is part of a small selective cohort of intellectually curious and talented rising high school juniors and seniors.
Project Greer Street is a ground-breaking and award-winning educational enrichment program for African American males launched by Ronald Sally, a graduate of Duke University and the UCLA School of Law. “During such a challenging year with the pandemic, this is very impressive and we are very proud of Braylon,” said Sally.
