My name is Ken Shuler, also known as FNX, and I am a hip hop artist and small business owner. I would like to open with a quote from George Washington Carver.

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.” 

(...and the letter continues at The Hour linked above)

Carver alumnus Kenneth "FNX" Shuler (and here) wrote and rapped "We Are Carver" as a tribute to Sean Combs who received the Child of America award at Carver's 80th Anniversary gala on May 11th. FNX was joined by Carver alumnae Gabbie Pierre-Louis and a chorus of Carver youth. Kenny Cash produced the music, cinematography was by John Shyloski, and Marc Alan edited the music video. All are associated with Carver's great supporter, Factory Underground. "We Are Carver" will now live on as Carver's anthem!
