Twenty Hopewell High students have been inducted into the newly formed Gentlemen’s Club, a collaboration with the Peters Foundation to start a national club intended to promote role models via improving academics, attendance and behavior.

Inductees were honored at a ceremony and received monogrammed white collared shirts, which is part of the attire they will be required to wear at their weekly meetings. They are Kejuan Adams, Ronald Cummings, Trevonte Diggs, Derek Dudley, Randall Enoch, Taj Exume, Devon Henry, Dashaun Johnson, Dajon Lacey, Davonzel McCaskill, John Makahili, Elsadig Mohamed, Cameron Perry, Noel Reid, Dion Rivers, Christian Robinson, Justin Shipp, Lawrence Thomas, Joshua Van Duzen and Alexander Weerasuriya.

The students will receive a weekly progress report from teachers based on academics, attendance behavior and attire. Students who score well on the reports will be chosen for extracurricular activities and programs. Club members must participate in community service projects.
