The Educate Tomorrow family is overwhelmed with emotion at the tragic loss of Antonio Monty Shelton. He was the inspiration behind the formation of Educate Tomorrow more than 20 years ago. He made a profound impact as a Board Member and will continue to leave a lasting legacy as a mentor to our youth. Over the past 17 years of Educate Tomorrow’s existence, Monty’s selfless desire to help others never went unnoticed. As we shed our tears, we will begin to gather our words and start the process of paying tribute to a man who truly wanted everything for everyone. We will forever honor his legacy. May he Rest In Peace and Power.
