Meet LeVarn
Posted on 10/23/2015
LeVarn is one of our remarkable Robbinsdale students. Steeped in the history of the civil rights movement, LeVarn Shelby III is a visible leader at his school.

He speaks eloquently about Martin Luther King Jr. and the events of the epic march in 1965 that led to the Voting Rights Act. Passionate about his firsthand experiences in Selma, Alabama, he credits the Civil Rights Research Tour (CRRT) trips he has taken as being life-changing. So much so that the Cooper High School senior wants to go on to college and work in civil rights so that he can make a difference.

Principal Frank Herman says, “He interacts with kids from many diverse groups and reaches out to really make everyone feel like they are a friend.” 

His teachers and classmates agree – LeVarn truly is remarkable. LeVarn is Robbinsdale.
