I gained my educational foundation from Detroit Public Schools.”

With all of his success, Mr. Hall gained his educational foundation from DPS schools; specially, Cass Technical High School. “The electrical background that I received at Cass Tech helped me in my college education and career. I learned to wire an entire building in high school. I gained great skills from my DPS experience.” 

In the early 1960’s Mr. Hall was one of the few African Americans who attended Cass Tech.  “I did not have a culture shock going to college because I was prepared in high school.  It is important to expose DPS student to various programs and experiences to prepare them for the future.”

Supporting DPS students is vitally important. “I value the programs that I was exposed to while at Detroit Public Schools.” Give back to Detroit students today!  Support the Detroit Public Schools Foundation.
