After graduating from Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain Georgia, Courtney continued her education at Alcorn State University in 2008 where she excelled academically and received many honors. Courtney’s academic achievements eventually garnered the notice of others outside of the school and led to her being named into the Congressional Award Internship Program in Washington D.C. in 2012. At this time Courtney’s passion for history and political science was awakened, and her tenure in the nation’s capital allowed her to gain even deeper insights into the mechanisms of the United States government.

His wisdom attained in real estate, along with the knowledge gained throughout his years as a professional business owner, has allowed him to continue her legacy. We love and miss Courtney dearly!  Until we see you again, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV.
