Dear Shoppes at Wendover Neighbors and Friends:

We are excited to share the news that Heads Up Barber and Beauty was one of five recipients of a 2018 Spark Award at the March 15th Education Summit. We were rec- ognized by the Guilford Education Alliance for our nonprofit organization, Heads Up For Our Youth, which provides outreach activities such as our award winning big- brother-barber program that has brought boys from several schools to our shop for educational activities, haircuts, guest speakers and lunch at Mario’s Pizza. Our pro- grams for the youth are geared to impart both information such as financial literacy, as well as motivational mentoring by professionals in various fields such as law en- forcement, business, and athletics.

One of our most successful programs is our annual Heads Up Back to School Rally at the Greensboro Coliseum Field House. This event is a collaboration with community leaders, sponsors, and vendors in the Greater Greensboro area to create a pep rally style environment for young students as they prepare for the new school year. This year will feature our Cops and Barbers Celebrity Basketball Game , a free youth bas- ketball skills and drills clinics by our partners at TGK Athletics, special guest speakers, raffles and more. The event will be moderated by HUFOY Board member Kerry Charles and Street Ball Legend Announcer Joe Pope. Students and parents register online at to attend and participate FREE, they get in- formation from donors and sponsors who support our local schools, and leave with a positive attitude toward education and community.

The Back to School Rally 2018 is especially important because it will focus on the youth from east Greensboro who have been affected by or even displaced from their schools due to the recent tornado. We want these young people to know that we celebrate their determination in the face of adversity and that we wish them great success in the 2018-2019 school year.


We have enjoyed important support from Staples, The Greensboro Coliseum Complex and Sprint business leaders. Other recent collaborations have included UNCG, Smitty’s McDonalds as well as the Greensboro SWARM.

Won’t you join us in making this Back to School Rally an event to highlight the Shoppes at Wendover and our business community ?

Thank you for sharing our passion for networking to support the youth in our community.
