The expected outcome is to promote self-­-awareness and encourage positive behavior.  

Thanks to Karen Glenn, director of STARS, Dr. Jacqueline Cothran, assistant principal and the Brainerd High School Administrative Team, this particular program fulfills Hamilton County’s Positive Behavior Intervention and Support program as it encourages self-­-awareness and inspires students to assume leadership roles in their community and amongst their friends. 

This program is designed specifically for the 9th grade class at Brainerd High School and is not open to the public. 

Officials said, "Hello My Name is King, Inc. is about challenging mainstream perceptions and elevating the way an individual thinks in order to progress and initiate change. The program’s vision is a society where black boys and teens are encouraged to break barriers, publicly value themselves, and make a difference in their communities."
