COSEBOC is pleased and honored that our Executive Director, Ron Walker, has been named Exceptional Man of the Week by the ExceptionAL Project.
“Meet our Exceptional Man of the Week! Ron Walker is a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Read on to see how he LEADS, LIVES, and LOVES!
LEADING: Ron has been an education and equity warrior for the past 52 years. He has served as a teacher in the great city of Philadelphia and a principal in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 2006, Ron founded the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSEBOC), a national organization dedicated to the affirmative social, emotional, academic, and cultural development of boys and young men of color.
LIVING: Ron feels most alive when he is in the company of his family and close friends. In the precious moments he is able to step away from the work you are likely to find him watching Gun Smoke and other westerns, cooking up some spicy shrimp, and walking.
LOVING: Family is of utmost importance to Ron. He cherishes his wife, children, and grandchildren with every fiber of his being. Ron also has a deep and abiding love for Black people. He thanks the Most High for extending him the grace and strength to love hard and remain faithful to this work.
Keep being ExceptionAL, Ron! We are standing on your shoulders…”
