Simmons Memorial Foundation – Helping Students Bridge the Expectations and Achievement Gap in Higher Education
We enjoy celebrating Delmarva natives who have gone on to make real differences in the world.
Fueled by heartache, Omari Scott Simmons and his family launched a program that helps young men and women reach dreams that they may never have thought possible.
He’s giving them college access, from the ground up. Raised in Milford, he’s now the founding director of Wake Forest University’s Business Law program, and he’s the executive director of The Simmons Memorial Foundation.
Simmons talks about what ignited his passion to help others and his book, “Potential on the Periphery.”
