Despite the challenges they faced, Sly’’s father, a chef, janitor, and small business owner; and his stepmother, who helped manage their business, still made sure that Sly and his brothers had the opportunity to go to a good school and follow their dreams. This laid the foundation for Mayor James’’ commitment to education and ensuring every child receives a high-quality education regardless of where they live or their socio-economic background.
