Email from Tameka Jackson, Dr. Henry A .Wise High School Football Team Liaison . . .
This year, the Wise Boy’s Football Team has once again clenched the Maryland 4A State Championship. (Back 2 Back)(28-0)
Our football players are recognized as such stellar athletes, that they each have been offered some form of college scholarships, and/or, preparatory school.
We had 12 seniors starting: Nine (9) will receive scholarship funding. One (1) to the military and the other 2 will be following dreams while still attending school.
The football team comes with great achievements. Wise Football Team is 28-0, Coach DaLawn Parrish: 106-30 , 3 State Championship, 5 Finals appearances, 6 Regional Championship, 6 County Championships, and 9 straight Playoff Appearances out of 11 years of existence. With 10 senior classes Wise has put over 95 kids in college from D1- Preparatory School.
This year, we are once again working to secure funds to purchase State Championship Rings for each of this year’s football players, in appreciation for their significant athletic accomplishment.
We hope to show how much their achievements are appreciated by you, the community.
We are asking for any assistance you can provide, whether financial, and/or, by spreading the word through community support for assistance in securing donations in support of this worthy cause.

Columbia Air Center– 16000 Croom Airport Road Upper Marlboro MD
Located just outside the Town of Upper Marlboro, the first African-American owned and operated airfield in Maryland, if not the nation, was licensed in 1941 by John W. Greene, Jr., a pioneer in black aviation. He was instrumental in developing the airfield originally called Riverside Field. Occupied by the U.S. Navy during World War II, the airfield reopened as Columbia Air Center, offering a flying school, charter services and maintenance shop. The first African-American Civil Air Patrol Squadron in the Washington, D.C. area was formed here. The site is located within Patuxent River Park which is owned and operated by The Maryland-National Park and Planning Commission. This site is currently used for agricultural purposes and none of the buildings or runways that once stood on the site are extant; interpretive signage tells the story of the historic airport and provides a map of the airfield when it was in use.
