Dublin High School's Troy Ashe was one of the 12 winners to receive the 2014 Class of Colored Rocks Foundation Prize.
The foundation's goal is to shine a light on distinguished male students of color, using them as a role model in an effort to improve high school graduation rates.
As a condition of his award, the DHS Senior committed to help develop a program for struggling peers.
Ashe considers himself to be "pretty good at math." So, the DHS Student Council President and Homecoming King established an after-school program for first graders with a focus on "making math fun for the 'younger' generation."
Following his graduation from Dublin High School this May, Ashe will attend Moorehouse College where he plans to major in Chemistry and minor in Math.
