Focus on Tomorrow is comprised of G. Holmes Braddock High School alumni that once participated in the school’s TV production program. Many of these alumni continue to enjoy a career in entertainment and news and attribute their success to the skills the Braddock program afforded them. In an effort to pay-it-forward, Focus on Tomorrow is determined to ensure that today’s students are provided the same opportunities.http://focus-on-tomorrow.org/
