Make plans to attend the black student association read-In Feb 8

02.07.2018 | By: Christi Tallent

The Black Student Association is hosting a Read-in featuring local author Louis T. McClain II, of Arlington, Texas. He holds a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Pensacola Christian College.  It was in Pensacola where Louie first discovered his passion in life-coaching troubled youth.  While volunteering with Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, Mr. McClain took on an initiative to make tutoring a court-ordered sanction and found success with Juvenile Court Judges and Probation Officers alike.  Louie went on to establish Humane Resources, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization with a mission to assist the formerly incarceration with job placement, a couple years later.  Shortly after that, Project: Liberia Smile was formed which gave college age students an opportunity attend universities in Liberia, West Africa. 

As a result, nine scholarships were granted over the course of two years.  Other than his Passion Projects, Louie has over seven years of full time employment in Juvenile Justice, and is currently employed by American Airlines as a Development Partner.  Furthermore, Mr. McClain is a proud father of two beautiful children named Serenity and Noah.  Louie is intrigued by the resilience and tenacity of African American leaders who stand for truth, justice, and overcoming any obstacles placed in their way.  Thus, he decided to create Melanin Origins LLC, a black owned global publishing service creating books for kids, to share messages of lesser-known African American pioneers to the children of the world and empower them to aspire for excellence and chase their dreams regardless of any complications they may face.
