About Stephen’s Spot

Stephen’s the name, blogging the’s game!

This is a WordPress site in which I talk about anything. Ranging from jobs, political, fun stuff, health awareness, religion, and more. All in a respectful manner to gather thought and opinion. Plus, the views and opinions of my blog, does not reflect my organizations, connections, network,  or any other group of my affiliation of my interests and goals.

More importantly, I’m a single African-American male living in the midwest, the city of Milwaukee. I have no kids, not married and just living my single life to the fullest. I volunteer my time with my church and donate to my alumni groups in Wisconsin for good reasons.  Plus also I work as a Secretary, and devote my time as Election Inspector for the City of Milwaukee.

Now I’m a social media junkie by spare time, with playing video games, going to the movies and long walks in the park. But I do my important duties on the inside to maintain myself overall.

Stephen’s Spot is not just about one blog. Or one picture. Or one anything. It can be revolutionary, conscious, fun, life experienced, or just plain normal. It’s not a one dance show. It’s one in the million that can be experienced if many take the time to read more than one.

    Hey Stephen, I wanted to write to you after I saw my name pop up in your blog from about a year ago. My name is Matthew Umstot, and I graduated from Marshall in 2006 and had that whole speech controversy. It seems like you are someone with a great passion for improving MPS so I wanted to reach out.

    In a crazy twist of fate, I am now a teacher in the very system I so heavily criticized as a teenager. I currently work at Morgandale teaching Social Studies to 7th and 8th graders. However, next year I am returning to Marshall to teach Social Studies there.

    I wanted to reach out to a fellow alum and join the MPS and Marshall alum community fully, something that’s always been a challenge for me to do. It was good to read your blog post about the many issues in Marshall’s past, and I would enjoy starting a dialogue to continue the positive improvements I’ve already read about.

    Sorry if this is long-winded, it’s a trait of mine I have never been able to shake. Thanks for the supportive words for someone you didn’t even know!

      Thanks for reading my blog post. I heard about your grad speech a couple of years back and I had to research it. I think you stood up for what you believed in and even though MPS/Marshall (in my view) was in the wrong of trying to take away your diploma, the folks at the time needed to listen. It was a concern, and currently it is a concern. So I hear that you are a teacher at Morgandale. I’m familiar with that school because my mother worked there for a couple of years in the 80’s.

      As far as the Marshall Alumni Community: I’m apart of the Marshall Alumni Association, in which we are trying to engage and reach out to the alums to provide in sight of their classes based on the reunions, current news about the school, etc. We’re a small group, but we want to continue to reach out to the Alumni who are willing to join. And also like any other group, we also have a thought to reach the younger alumni to support and engage. We meet at Marshall once a month for our board meetings and also try to engage ideas with the current staff and students. I can give you additional information about that and the Alumni President contact person if interested.

      For the MPS: If you didn’t know, MPS is now engaging with the Alumni! All the classes, schools, eras, etc. For the last couple of years, it’s been engaging them through the events of the Alumni Reunions, Summits, Networking Series, and even special outings like to basketball games etc. Speaking of that, the 3rd MPS Alumni Reunion is coming up on May 11th in which all alumni are interested in coming. It also has a listing of events displayed on their website under the MPS Alumni Hub. – http://www.mpsalumnihub.com. The listings, events and contact person are all listed.

      Any other news or questions about this, you can let me know.

      Thanks for reading!
