Skylan Stephens is More Miraculous than meets the eye 09/25/2023

Another GP Alumni spotlight - GP Brother Skylan “Sky” Stevens is a graduate student at Milligan working towards his master’s in counseling. Despite being legally blind due to a rare condition he was born with, he is the captain of the track team and plays the alto sax in his free time. Faith, family and focus got him where he is. We were glad to have shared a piece of his journey.

Skylan Stephens is More Miraculous than meets the eye It was a warm March afternoon after a long day of school. I was a 14-year-old freshman at a school by the name of Middle College High School in my hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. Track and field conditioning was being announced around the school, and I knew I wanted to try track for the first time.

CONFIDENCE IN THE FUTURE

At Grizzlies Prep, we know that families want to feel confident in the future of their sons. That’s why we designed a structured and caring middle school to address the needs of young men. Many students become disengaged in middle school leading to poor academic growth, misbehavior, and concerned parents. We believe that no student should be limited by a poor learning environment. Grizzlies Prep provides an excellent academic foundation, social-emotional development, and incredible opportunities so families can feel confident in the future.
